MEMBERS of MacIntyre have proved people with learning difficulties have the X Factor for musical entertainment.
For there is enough talent at the Great Holm-based scheme to fill an entire theatre – literally.
Tomorrow MacIntyre members will perform a celebration of music and dance at Stantonbury Theatre.
The young adults have spent months rehearsing, writing and even adapting their favourite songs.
And they have called their performance, aptly, Pop Music Is For Everyone.
Topping the bill will be Haddon Beats, an electro-pop band comprising of Iain Smith, Mary Hughes, Ian Forrest, Ben Johnson, Lee Ceconi and Becky Hammond.
Singer Sarah Moore will demonstrate her talent with a performance from Sarah and the Time Stalkers, while other acts include Music from Defi and dancing from a performing arts group.
The show has been organised by Haddon Projects, the charity’s own online soap. music and training presented by adults with learning disabilities for adults with learning disabilities.
“Everyone has worked really hard and had great fun rehearsing,” said a spokesman.
Based in Milton Keynes, MacIntyre provides a wide range of learning, support and care services to over 1,000 children, young people and adults nationally.
“We offer creative personalised solutions that encourage independence for each person, whatever the level of disability, and support them to lead fulfilling lives,” said the spokesman.
