Electric Umbrella in ST ALBANS!

In anticipation of us hoping to one day soon have a regular group in St Albans, we are offering free taster sessions in May.

Check the flyer for more details and if you would like to join us please reserve a place ASAP as places will be limited.

We look forward to welcoming you, and a big thank you to Oster House for hosting us!



Well… What a night!!! We are all shattered but overjoyed that it turned out to be the best yet. Completely SOLD OUT! We’ll be posting pictures and videos as soon as they come in. Thank you everyone for making Electric Umbrella 2015 so awesome!!! Tom and Mel x




We’ve just heard that throughout the month of March, Electric Umbrella is being supported by the Community Matters Scheme at Waitrose Berkhamsted!!!

…so PLEEEASE put your green token in our labelled box. The more tokens we get, the greater the share of the donation we will receive!


(Each month, every branch of Waitrose donates a total of £1,000 to three local organisations. For every transaction, no matter how small, the customer will be given a ‘green token’ to place in the box of their choice.)

Please remind the cashier to give you a green token every time you shop in Waitrose Berkhamsted!



We are ON TOUR throughout FEBRUARY promoting our big show on MARCH 12!

We are ABSOLUTELY ECSTATIC to announce that our Electric Umbrella Kick Starter campaign has reached it’s £5000 target against all odds. This has helped to secure the two current locations we have in Watford and Berkhamsted.

Although we reached our initial target of £5000, it is just the beginning of a very long process of finding funding and resources to continue the work we do, both geographically to reach people in other locations further afield, and into 2015 and beyond.

Thank you all so so much for all your pledges, and offers of help. We have been astonished by the overwhelming support we have received. We had 48 backers that supported our campaign, and we would like to thank each and every one of your for your contribution – please know that your contribution will go a long way to enrich the lives of the people we work with.

If you think you can help us in any way, please contact us. (At the moment we are especially keen to hear from anyone that might be able to help us with small print runs of flyers etc.)


The Electric Umbrella is finally up and running!!

At the beginning of October we celebrated the first in a new season of workshops and performances with our all new WATFORD group at the LaMarie Centre with massive thanks to our partners, Watford Mencap. It was a joyous affair and fantastic to see new and old faces alike! 

We can also announce that our second set of sessions will be in ***BERKHAMSTED***
(thanks to the support of Dacorum Mencap) and begins on 7th NOVEMBER at Berkhamsted Football Club. Thank you also to the football club for their support with the venue.
