Watch anytime

Reading Mencap, a local charity supporting people with learning disabilities, team up with StrikeUp Theatre, an innovative group of theatre makers.  The result?  ‘Exchange’ - a performance sharing project involving singing, comedy, drumming, dancing, and visual arts enabling participants and audiences to feel connected.

Inspired by a desire to bring connection, creativity and purpose to a community facing severe isolation, loneliness, frustration and despondency - bringing so much more – the joy of creating, achieving, giving to each other and you, and having FUN!

Thought you knew what people with learning disabilities can (and can’t) do?  Think again!!!
