The Movement Centre Winter Wonderland

The Movement Centre would like to invite you all to a Winter Wonderland, where you can meet Santa, get your Christmas Tree and start your Christmas shopping in the Pentreclawdd Farm Christmas Shop.

Tickets for children to visit Santa are just £6 (Adults can meet Santa for free). All proceeds from the event will go to The Movement Centre, to help support children with movement disabilities.

This will be a special event where the children (and adults) can meet Father Christmas, to give him their wish list, adults can have a mulled wine and mince pie, and all children will pick a gift to take home. Pentreclawdd Farm also have a Christmas shop and of course lots of Christmas trees to choose from so it will be a magical day out for the whole family.

Join us for this magical event on Sunday 16th December!

Please note adults are not required to purchase a ticket. Tickets are to be purchased for each child visiting Santa.

Tickets can be purchased from EventBrite

An Evening of Song

Date: 17th October 2018

We are very excited to reveal an evening of song with Cor Meibion Orffiws Y Rhos / Rhos Orpheus Male Choir, and a very special act Elan Catrin Parry. Elan released her first CD on Friday 3rd August after appearing on TV, making a pledge to sign a record deal and release her first album.

A year ago, Welsh schoolgirl Elan Catrin Parry made a pledge to Davina McCall on ITV’s life-transforming primetime show, This Time Next Year TV Show, revealing her dream: “I want to make an album.” Fast forward one year, and Elan has signed a major recording deal with Decca Records. The 15-year-old has had enormous success with her debut single Anfonaf Angel, and her incredible first album was released on

Friday 3rd August .

We are very lucky indeed to have the Rhos Orpheus Male Voice Choir and Elan performing at Holy Trinity Church on Wednesday 17th October for an evening of spectacular singing. This will be a charity event in aid of The Movement Centre and we cannot thank them enough for donating their time and wonderful voices to help support our children’s charity. Why not visit Elan’s Facebook page and see for yourself how good she is. Like and Share her page Elan Catrin Parry.

Tickets available of EventBrite . Book early to avoid disappointment.

Superhero Series

Date: 18th August 2018

Join Team Monty!!

The Movement Centre has partnered with the Superhero Series, the UK’s one and only disability sports series for the Everyday Superhero! The idea is simple: To create fun, full-throttle challenges where people with disabilities call the shots and don’t have to worry about cut-off times or equipment restrictions.

The Movement Centre is looking for families to join ‘Team Monty’ and take part in 2 events, the first being in August. Raising money and awareness about the work we do is important to us and taking part in an event like this will be great. We have free places in 2 events to fill. These will be given out on a first come, first served basis. You can find out more about the fantastic events here. All we ask is for you to aim to raise a minimum of £100 per family of Superheroes, and that you have lots of fun on the day. We’ll be there to cheer you on and support you all the way!

We are also  looking into the potential to get transport arranged to and from The Movement Centre (or nearby) for the events, so do let us know if this is something you would be interested in.

Also, if you are interested, why not become an Every Day Superhero?  If you would like to become an Every Day Superhero you can read more info here. They would have to ask you a few questions, need a photo to have you turned into an Avatar and for you to be happy for the Superhero Series to announce you on social media. We think being turned in to Avatar sounds great!

If you would like enter this event then please do get in touch with us, and we will send you the links and redeem code. We would love it if you could join us!
