Kirkham Henry Community Interest Company (CIC) 

Our activities are defined as “to provide benefit to people of all ages, abilities and social groups within the local community of Ryedale and North Yorkshire in general.” 

What is our role? 

To promote, maintain, improve and advance the education of the community of Ryedale and North Yorkshire in the arts of dance, mime, drama, music and all aspects of the performing arts through classes, workshops and performances. 
 
Kirkham Henry provides a happy, friendly, disciplined and focussed environment which allows its members both young and mature to flourish. The philosophy of the Centre is one of care and concern for each individual aiming to achieve the personal and vocational development of each member to the best of his/her ability. 

How will the activity benefit the community? 

The community will benefit by the fact that Kirkham Henry Performing Arts CIC contributes to the 5 Outcomes of ‘Every Child Matters’:- 
Be Healthy 
The arts of drama, dance and music are very physical activities which promote energy and mental and emotional well-being and lead to a healthier lifestyle. 
Be Safe 
Our members are encouraged to attend as many classes as they wish after school and all day Saturday each week. They are totally committed to learning in a safe, secure and happy environment. Thus we help towards keeping young people in Ryedale and York off the streets and away from anti-social behaviour, drug-taking and alcohol abuse. 
Be Happy 
The arts of drama, dance and music are very physical activities which promote energy and mental and emotional well-being and lead to a healthier lifestyle.
