Hijinx Theatre’s Unity Festival 2009     

Hijinx Theatre’s Unity Festival 2009  If you’re looking for something refreshingly different to do during the week of June 15 to 21st then take a look at the Unity Festival.

Hijinx Theatre is delighted to be working with Wales Millennium Centre
to present the second Unity Festival in association with Touch Trust, Disability Arts Cymru, Community Music Wales and Mencap Cymru. The festival promotes the best in disability arts, learning disability arts and
inclusive arts.

In an eclectic line up, highlights this year include the Oska Bright Film
Festival, StopGap inclusive dance company, comedian Laurence Clark with his viciously funny show Spastic Fantastic and Hijinx Theatre’s new play by Glenys Evans for learning disabled and community audiences – Chasing Rainbows. We are also very excited to add an international element to the line up this year, with Spanish companies Clownfish and Clownbaret visiting Wales to work with our very own Odyssey Theatre.

Worried about the Credit Crunch? As usual there is a dazzling array of
free workshops for all ages and abilities, performances and exhibitions
to accompany our “headliners”, making Unity the ultimate antidote to these
tough times. We’re sure there will be something you’d like to get involved
with, whether you can make it for just one day or the entire week!

Plus, don’t miss the finale to the festival on 21st June at Cardiff Students
Union – featuring the fantastic Heavy Load (Brighton based punk band supported by local funk collective Funky Love Posse and up and coming band Smashing Diamonds. Tickets for this event are £5 on the door, but if you have a learning disability you can get in for free by calling the Wales Learning Disability Helpline on 0808 808 1111!

You can download a full schedule of events at or call

to meeting you at Unity 2009!
