Redbananallama meet weekly in Lancaster to organise inclusive, fun and friendly club nights run by and for people with disabilities.

They are designed to give people an insight into how the arts work and how they can explore their own creativity in a social environment.

“We’re entrepreneurs,” said Claire, 37, a group member and drama graduate.

“We hope to organise a night out that’s different from any other. The first theme is Cowboys and Aliens but we have other themes planned for later in the year, including a Winter Ball.”

The first club night will be at DT3, one of The Dukes venues in Moor Lane, next Thursday, but the plan is to move the events to other venues in the city and possibly Preston too.

The group is open to anyone aged over 21 with disabilities and meets every Thursday from 10am-3pm.
