For over 15 years we have been promoting creativity in learning. It’s been clear in all of our work that rhythm and rhyme, stories and songs could help many young learners improve their progress. Find out much more about the methods and results in our Films section.

But now, from the summer of 2020, it’s a great pleasure to announce our participation in a new creative project for Post Covid Recovery … more about that below. And even more exciting is the opening of our brand new Local History & Green Energy centre. Together, these 2 strands offer wonderful learning experiences for a range of ages and interests.

History Centre


To NOMINATE YOUR LOCAL HEROES of LOCKDOWN .. just click here then write and include your phone number. Why? Well it’s all part of the ‘feel-good’ Tapestry of Heroes project. Do you remember the Thursday evening clap for carers and NHS workers? Our strand of the Creative Post Covid Recovery for PL24 is taking that idea much further, expanding to include all our local heroes. We have begun, collecting and mixing sounds into a ‘tapestry’ of singing, speaking, clapping and drumming. We have also started making a real tapestry, which will be carried in PL24 area procession events, during spring and summer 2021.

This Post Covid Tapestry project is 1 of 7 different strands of activity on offer in Par area, funded and supported by Creative Civic Change. Find out more here:
