Local Activities

On this page you will be able to read details of local activities and links I like.

Most of these are things I have heard about, through my connections with people in Dorset. There's lots going on- why don't you get involved!

Introduction to the Cinema- Empire Cinemas, Tower Park, Poole.

Every Monday at 10.30am they run a special screening for people with moderate to severe learning disabilities. These films are specially chosen to appeal and are designed as a 'first trip to the cinema' experience. Each film costs just £1.50 to attend, with the opportunity to buy a special 'film box' snack for just £3.00. During these films the lights are left on, there is a break halfway through and many of the adverts are cut.Wheelchair spaces are limited. Take your own carer. These sessions are run jointly by Empire, DotComUnity and The Care Division.
