Electric Umbrella Club Night 2016

A massive thank you to each and every one of the almost 400(!) of you who attended our 4th club night – our participants and performers, the band, our wonderful volunteers and of course our fantastic audience!

It was a particularly special one for us, as it was our first event as a registered charity. Please please keep supporting us by spreading the joy of Electric Umbrella and the work that we do far and wide! We have a long road ahead of us to raise vital funds to keep the music going, but with your support we know this is possible!

Once again, the totally brilliant Stuart Bendig has managed to capture the sheer joy of Electric Umbrella with these great photos. Thank you to everyone who made it possible and we really hope you enjoy these pictures.




Latest Press Release

Following our current tour with our 60 participants performing to over 750 people, next week will be our 4th annual club night and performance extravaganza.

We are looking for Volunteers!

We are extremely lucky to be so well supported by wonderful volunteers, parents and supporters. However, there is always so much to do that we are always seeking additional help!
We are particularly keen to find volunteers for our weekly sessions,  upcoming show in March, together with volunteers willing to drive our tour bus! (You must have a full clean driving license, and be available for a couple of hours training with our transport company.)

If you are an individual over the age of 18, or an organisation with time and expertise to share, we would love to talk to you about how you can become involved in supporting Electric Umbrella.

All we ask is that you are committed, and have lots of energy and enthusiasm for the joy we have to share. It is not necessary to have any qualifications, but relevant experience in working with people with disabilities, or music and the arts is preferred.

We have numerous roles available from supporting our large events, weekly sessions, gigs, and everything in between – as a one off or regular commitment.

To express your interest, please complete the form below and return by email or post. For any other enquiries relating to your application please contact us.

Please note all volunteers will be subject to an informal interview, relevant DBS checks and references.

We look forward to hearing from you.
