A new women only storytelling and music group has just started at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton, in conjunction with City of Sanctuary. The aim of the sessions is to give asylum seeking and refugee women the chance to use singing, movement and stories to build confidence, improve English language skills and meet new friendly people. The group meets Wednesdays 10.15 – 11.45 in term time and ends with lunch. Sessions are free. Contact Deborah on 01204 557145 for more information.
The Octagon Theatre is aiming to be recognised as a Theatre of Sanctuary.
