A WEEKLY Worcester social club set up for adults with learning disabilities and autism is the subject of a new film.

When local theatre company Collar and Tie (C&T), who also make documentaries, contacted Mencap in London about making a film with a group of people with learning disabilities in Worcestershire, the charity suggested the Monday Night Club. C&T filmed one of the group’s talent show evenings, which forms part of the 30-minute documentary, The Monday Night Club has got Talent, which has its premiere at the Swan Theatre, Worcester.

The Monday Night Club, which meets at Barbourne Ex-Servicemen’s Club every Monday, won a grant from the Big Lottery, Awards for All, which paid for everything.

The group has a lot of talent including singers, an award-winning actor, a gold medalist gymnast, a published author and a top Elvis impersonator.

The club was founded in 2011 by Laura Gill, who has LD and ASD, so she could meet her friends and have some fun. She has been made an ‘Inspire Me’ Ambassador for Mencap for her work with the club.

She said: “We had such fun putting on our talent show and making the film.” The club is appealing for a red carpet to add the finishing touch to their big night. If you can help with the loan of a red carpet, call 07973 788029.

The film will be screened at the Swan Theatre, on Monday, June 3, starting at 7.30pm. There will be a champagne reception and entertainment from the talented group members.
