Project cost: £5,000
BSCF Contribution: £2,000
The Unicorn Theatre (charity number 225751) requested £2,000 from the Bermondsey Square Community Fund to support its weekend community project, the UP Club.
UP Clubs (Unicorn Play Clubs) run every Saturday from midday, from September to July, and offer the local community and visitors to the theatre a varied diet of creative activities, often linked to a theme from one of our current productions.
The UP Club was founded as a means of inviting the local community into the building at no cost to them, encouraging creativity and play between family members, friends and other participants. Activities offered have been wide-ranging, including painting, puppet making, mask making, drawing, drama games and exploring music.
