Welcome to our Weekly Newsletter where we share relevant information with you about what has been happening here at Bracken Leas and events planned in future weeks.

Please can you kindly take a look at the fabulous musical ‘Room 46’ that has an opening night on the 11th August at the Castle Theatre in Wellingborough. If you take a look at www.room46.co.uk, you will see the majority of the cast are from Northampton so we are really looking for some local support for these amazing young adults!

ROOM 46 (The Musical) highlights ‘a year in a life’ through the eyes of a group of locked-down teenagers. The play is a visual of our history and it portrays the emotions and effects that the pandemic of 2020 had on our youth. We witnessed anxiety, social isolation and mental-health problems rise amongst our young generation, Covid-19 certainly has a lot to answer for and it is a time that we should never forget.
