Learning disabled people are invited to a spooky club night

Arctic Piranha club night for learning disabled people and their friends is taking on a spooky twist on Saturday 8 October, and it promises to be a real treat.

The club nights take place every few months and have been created to specially cater for learning disabled adults and their friends, and offers a chill out area and safe spaces to dance and socialise.

The theme this month is all things Halloween. Expect plenty of spooky songs, ghoulish decorations and lots of laid back fun and games as well as some specially crafted creepy cocktails.

Arctic Piranha came about at the request of learning disabled people in the Tees Valley who were looking for somewhere safe to enjoy a night-clubbing experience.

Christopher Evans, 22, who helps to plan the events said: “Arctic Piranha is a brilliant club. We are adults and want a good night out, so we just want to promote it to as many people as possible.”

Arctic Piranha club nights form part of Cultural Shift, a three year project funded by the Spirit of 2012 Trust. Cultural Shift, delivered by ARC in partnership with Little Cog, is a comprehensive three year programme of dynamic arts activity involving disabled people at every level. 

Tickets cost £3 and companions go free. For more information about Arctic Piranha or to book tickets for the upcoming club night call the Box Office on 01642 525199 or click here
