Tuesday 6th December 2016 06:37 Community Hyde News Posted by Adam Higgins

Tameside Arts has undergone a number of changes over the past couple of months and the evolution continues.

After several happy years at Loxley House, they recently had an open day at their new premises at The Jigsaw Centre in Hyde, which was full of fun, food, voting and… belly dancing!

The new home houses a Sensory Room, music room, arts and crafts room, dance studio and performance hall, not to mention a full kitchen and dining room for our Jigsaw Cafe.

“The response from our members to our new place has been positive,” said Paul Husband, a Facilitator at Tameside Arts.

“There is a renewed energy and happiness with members and staff alike and we have all been working together to develop new ideas and activities which we will be putting into place in the New Year.”

In addition to settling in at their new base, Tameside Arts are also gearing up for their ever-popular Christmas show.

Paul said: “We are remaining slightly tight lipped about what it will involve at the moment.

“But we think it’ll be very special and would like it to be a surprise although as always you will get a taster of every group we run at Tameside Arts will be threaded into the production (plus disco, raffle, exhibition, etc).

“Maybe if I let you know the presentation is entitled ‘Happily Ever After’, you may get some clue as to the theme of the show.”

Tameside Arts are welcoming residents from Hyde, Tameside and beyond to drop into the Jigsaw Café at Rosemount on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays between 9am-3pm for a brew, a bite to eat and a glance at the great work they do there.
