Activities will be offered to local carers as a new group is launched in June.

Working with the Suffolk Community Foundation, the Seagull Theatre in Pakefield is launching a fortnightly free activity especially targeted at adults with caring responsibilities.

From June 8 the venue is offering fortnightly acting classes from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on a Wednesday.

Designed as a fun activity for carers to get out and relax, the fortnightly group will be led by director and professional performer, Thom Bailey.

Entitled 'Playing Up' the classes will feature a range of fun drama activities designed to build confidence and skills.

Mr Bailey said: “I am really excited to launch this new group as I think it’s a great opportunity for local carers to get a couple of hours away from their responsibilities, meet other people and have a little fun.

"It won’t be an overly formal or strict class, its designed to be fun and to get people involved who maybe haven’t done drama before."
