Char­ity is to hold fes­ti­val

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

A CHAR­ITY which sup­ports adults with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties is get­ting into the fes­ti­val spirit.

Drop­per In­ners based at the Speak­ing Up Speak­ing Out’s Para­chute drop in cen­tre are tak­ing part in three events dur­ing this year’s Barn­aby Fes­ti­val.

They shared the mes­sage ‘no more bar­ri­ers’ as they marched in the pa­rade at the week­end, and to­day, Wed­nes­day 22, they will be spend­ing lunchtime - from 12.30 un­til 1.30pm - in the Mar­ket Place teach­ing peo­ple easy sign lan­guage.

On Fri­day, June 24, they will be hold­ing a con­cert at the United Re­formed Church on Park Green.

There will be orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions ex­plor­ing the dis­par­ity be­tween in­ter­nal free­doms and the bar­ri­ers of the ex­ter­nal world. Drop­per-In­ner Graham Bar­nett said: “The mu­sic will show the feel­ings of the peo­ple who come to SUSO. Come along and let your hair down. You’ll get to see amaz­ing peo­ple per­form­ing.”
