Occasionally Playgoers would go on the road. One our favourite places was Scalesceugh Hall near Carlisle. It was the home, up until 2011, for adults with cerebral palsy run by the Cumbria Cerebral Palsy Society. We were made so welcome by the people who lived there! Stepping Out was particularly challenging as we had to tap dance on carpets! Here are some photos taken in the grounds of the Hall. I have just discovered the negatives this year, 2018.
