Mother Kind at Tribe
The Mother Kind group has provided a welcoming space for mums in the early stages. A lot of the mothers have been relieved to find that they are not the only ones to feel the way they do and there has been a lot of laughter along the way. With no fixed agenda, we’ve talked about topics ranging from tricky relationships, to coping with holidays, to how to cope when your baby isn’t an ‘easy’ baby. More here
Tribe Porty Den!
We are proud to announce a new quiet space - the Tribe Den - which is open to everyone using a desk at Tribe. It's for people to dip in & out of and have some space to Skype call, have a private meeting, talk over the phone, or anything else that might require a bit of privacy.
We also have a new Costume and Set Design class on Sundays from 4-6pm. Here is a little more about it from our Costume and Set Designer Sophie, "The Tribe Porty Youth Theatre will be performing Mary Poppins at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. While the cast and Director are busy with rehearsals the Design Team are getting going with costumes, set and props. So far we have analysed the script, researched, done some drawing and started on a set model. There is lots to do and it’s all great fun if you enjoy making things, being creative and working as a team. We are taking a break for Easter and we’ll be meeting again on Sundays at Tribe Hub 4pm – 6pm from 10th April. Join us!"
Come and join Tribe Porty Youth Theatre for a class that’s bursting with energy and packed with fun as we help your pre schooler to develop their creativity, confidence, social skills and coordination with action stories, rhymes, props and games.Please feel free to just drop in and experience the fun.
