18th February 2019 Posted in Community News
The first community event to be hosted in South Hill Park’s newly refurbished Coach House on Friday 1st March is Bracknell Town Mayor’s Charity Black Tie Dinner in aid of South Hill Park’s youth learning and participation programmes, specifically:
- 11/17, South Hill Park’s youth drop in sessions where young people aged 11-17 years enjoy hands-on engagement with the Arts for only £1 on Friday evenings.
- MOLE – a group of South Hill Park’s young producers plan and deliver an annual arts festival for primary schools involving more than 500 children.
- Wilde About Arts theatre group for young people in care, young carers and those young people considered to be vulnerable or at risk. This experiential theatre group focuses on teamwork, togetherness, creating and expression.
“I am delighted this Charity Dinner is a complete sell-out. 110 local opinion leaders are gathering to support our local youth”, said Bracknell Town Mayor Cllr Sandra Ingham. “It is important to support our young people. South Hill Park’s inclusive youth programmes build the resilience, self-confidence and social skills of young people with an interest in the Arts and this in turn benefits our local community.”
The Charity Dinner is hosted by Bracknell Town Mayor Cllr Sandra Ingham and supported by HM The Queen’s representative, The Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire, Patron of Berkshire Youth. Local businesses will also be supporting this event including Boehringer-Ingelheim and Redwood Technologies. Bracknell Forest Mayor Cllr Alvin Finch will also be present.
Bracknell Town Council leader, Cllr Chris Turrell says “This will be an event to look forward to in an exciting new venue. Cllr Sandra Ingham has worked very hard as Mayor of Bracknell Town, for youth at South Hill Park, her chosen charity.”
“I have seen the positive and in some cases life-changing impact participation in the arts can have on young people. We run a variety of targeted and open-access projects here at South Hill Park; made possible by such charitable fundraising. We are delighted our Bracknell Town Mayor Cllr Sandra Ingham has selected Youth at South Hill Park as her charity of the year. This is an important relationship which will help ensure the Youth Programme at South Hill Park Arts Centre can continue to flourish,” says Mark Hooper, South Hill Park Arts Centre’s, Associate Director, Youth Learning and Participation Programmes.
South Hill Park’s Coach House is an important venue which is now open for bookings including corporate events and weddings.
