Troublemakers is a new performing arts group for teenagers with learning disabilities in the Fenland area.

Students will take part in drama, dance and singing – with the aim of building confidence, developing communication skills and improving self-expression.

Troublemakers has been running in Cambridge at Eddie’s Fulbourn site for 12 months and has been hugely successful.

An Eddies spokesman said: “It is hoped to replicate the success in the Fenland area, providing more opportunities for teenagers to have fun and learn new skills.

“Each term experienced tutors and volunteers will guide students on a fun-packed journey through various musical genres, styles and techniques.

“The key elements of a Troublemakers session are creativity and imagination, with staff and volunteers promoting high self-esteem and independence by encouraging students to contribute ideas and take ownership of the group.”

Sessions will run during term time on Wednesdays at the Meadowgate School in Wisbech, from 3.15-5.15pm. The group is due to start on Wednesday September 17. To volunteer you do not need any performing arts experience, just a responsible, caring attitude and a willingness to get involved.

Full training will be given and you will be supervised and supported by Troublemakers tutors and the Volunteers Co-ordinator.
