[A] man with learning disabilities from Carlisle will be debuting his musical talents in the theatre production of Tales of a Long Conflict this weekend.

Andrew, who’s passionate about playing the harmonica, lives in Carlisle and is supported by national disability charity, Walsingham Support.

Staff recognised Andrew’s creativity and encouraged him to attend the local arts organisation, Prism Arts, which gives people with disabilities the opportunity to learn about, and get involved with, drama, music and art.

Tales of a Long conflict, which is being performed throughout Cumbria until November 28, marks the Somme’s centenary year and depicts the impact of World War I on the people of Carlisle.

Justine Williams, Manager at Andrew’s service, said: “It is great to see Andrew getting involved in activities he enjoys and being able to showcase his talents to a local audience, I can’t wait to watch the production on Monday.”
