Learning Disability Community Disco

It’s been nearly a year since we hosted one of our club nights at Pryzm Nightclub in Leeds. These evenings were one of the highlights of everyone’s month with around 200 people attending from the Learning Disabled Community. We are all desperate to be able to get together soon and can’t wait until we can host another event at Pryzm in the near future.

To try make up for this we’ve been running virtual DJ nights on our Facebook Group throughout the pandemic. Listening to some great tunes, we dance tnd chat online while the event is streamed live into our homes and kitchens!

The weekends start early at Leep1 with DJ nights running from Thursday to Saturday every week. Our members kindly volunteer to host these weekly events and they have learnt some amazing new DJ-ing skills along the way.

Thursday Nights

Thursday night is Ollie and Chris’s turn on the decks playing 80s and 90s hits. Chris and Ollie have both invested in some fantastic equipment to enhance their shows: from UV backdrops to professional DJ lights and mixing software.

Friday Night

Vicky loves to play classic club dance hits to get the weekend really started but loves taking requests too.

Saturday Night

Dj Sapphire has learnt some great skills along the way and invested in some Professional DJ Decks during the first lockdown. She loves to play a real mixture of music from reggae, dub, dance and pop.

Leep1 Facebook Group reaches 250 milestone

Together We’re Stronger

On March 16th 2020 we were told the sad news that Leep1 and Cafe Leep were closing until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, out of these dark times a new light shone through. All the friendships, love and mutual support that make Leep1 the wonderful place it is moved to a new space online. The Leep1 Facebook Group was born!

By the end of the first day, the group already had 50 members signed up to join and by the end of the first week we had nearly 100!

Numbers have steadily increased over the weeks and everyday we welcome new faces to this amazing community.

Today, we are so proud to announce that we have now reached 250 members!

Well done to everyone for making it the supportive and wonderful place it is!
