Halifax-based social enterprise Imagineer run a range of sessions aimed at people with learning and physical disabilities.

Beat It nightclub is a monthly event held on the first Thursday of every month and is a chance for people of all abilities to enjoy an evening of dance and music together.

The Outsiders, a live band of talented musicians, singers and performers with learning disabilities, perform at every event and entertain audiences with pop and rock covers as well as some of their own music.

The nightclub, held at The Salvation on Bull Green, launched last month and there has already been a positive response.

Nicola Dean, of Imagineer, said: “The first night was fabulous - it went really well and we’re hoping that even more people will join us.”

Beat It also provides creative sessions in dance, drama and music for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health problems.

The sessions, held on Wednesday afternoons from 12.30-3.30pm, take place within a group setting or on a one to one basis and enable people to explore their creative side, develop confidence and learn new skills.

Two free taster sessions are also available for new members.

The sessions run at the Imagineer building on 36 Gibbet Street.
