Perform-Ability: This group was created by Novocastrian Miranda Daisy Hayman to offer dance, drama and music programs for people of all ages with special needs and disabilities. Be prepared for the joy which emanates from these performers.

Shake, Rattle and Roll: This choir meets weekly and is for those with Parkinson’s Disease and their carers. As well as social contact, the voice and the brain get a good work out with songs which challenge them.

Under Construction: Under Construction Mental Health and Well-being Choir was formed in 2008. The choir offers a socially inclusive program that aims to unlock creative potential through singing. Through singing together they make positive connections. They build resilience through commitment and the meeting of goals enhance self-esteem in a friendly environment. They create an optimistic community for our members through singing, movement, musicianship and friendship.
