What are we all about?
RED BUTTON DRAMA ARTS started up in Jan 2013 because so many parents had asked Mandy if she was doing any drama clubs for children. Mandy also thought it was shocking that her son had reached P7 and had never been in a play at school. Red Button now run drama and arts workshops for all types of groups in the community.
The children's clubs are physical, energetic and embrace spontaneity, whilst the crafting clubs for senior citizens are explore different materials and techniques. RED BUTTON encourages originality and nurtures creativity in everyone.
