Groups & Clubs in Wigginton

 York City FC Foundation

Host a Sporting memories coffee morning three times a week in and around the York Area. This is open to all but primarily designed to Support older people in the UK that are at risk of becoming isolated, Sporting Memories encourages those that attend to recall positive memories that are rekindled through the means of sport.
This social activity is dementia friendly and strives to help members of the local community come together and share their stories. Not only do we chat but we also dabble in a spot of boccia or darts and the occasional quiz. Each week is very different!
The weekly event costs nothing to attend and there is always a selection of biscuits to go down well with a free hot drink.

Your next session:
Monday: 1-2.30pm, Wigginton Old School
Thursday: 10.30-12pm, Springhill Court, Easingwold
Friday:10.30-12pm, Bootham Crescent

The ballet school is based in York. The schools aim is for students to experience creative dance and music through fun filled classes, building their confidence and improving their musicality, posture, and expression. At half term and at the end of term, parents, relatives and friends are invited to come and watch at presentation week. I feel it is important for the student’s parents to be part of the children’s progression and achievements. All pupils are encouraged to have fun as well as developing the discipline needed for ballet.
En Pointe provides Easter/Summer schools and Shows.

10-10.30 Baby Ballet chicks for 1-2 year olds
