April 2016 – FROGTASTIC celebrates 10th Birthday!
As part of its Tenth Anniversary year, The Heroes Project is delighted to announce that its unique club night ‘Frogtasitc’ will officially celebrate 10 fantastic years at The Frog and Bucket on Wednesday 29th April.
The ever popular club night, staged at The Frog and Bucket on Oldham Street, was launched in April 2006 to serve Greater Manchester’s learning disabled community and its many friends and supporters.
By way of celebrating “A Decade of Dancing” Frogtastic club night organisers ‘The Heroes Project’ have been able to significantly reduce the cost of admission tickets throughout 2016 courtesy of a grant award from Comic Relief with benefits being passed on to attendees through reduced admission costs.
This has been done as a way of thanking clubbers for their continued support of what has become one of Manchester’s most unique and pioneering little club nights.
Alongside reaching a significant milestone, Frogtastic organisers are also looking forward to welcoming their 17,500th visitor on the night to what has become a hugely popular event engaging many members of the learning disabled community and their friends.
In 2006, The Frog and Bucket received a prestigious ‘Positive Action Award’ following the safe evacuation of 200 clubbers in May 2008 after the failure of a big screen in Piccadilly Gardens led to serious disorder involving thousands of Rangers fans who had travelled to the city without tickets for the UEFA Cup Final at the city of Manchester Stadium.
Heroes Project Founder & Principal, Terry Snowden MBE said “Frogtastic has maintained a good reputation and remained a popular social engagement hub for many members of Greater Manchester’s learning disabled community for ten years now, which represents a significant achievement! We know this little club night plays a really important part in some people’s lives and it’s great that we have been able to play a part in providing what are thoroughly enjoyable, and equally important, social engagement experiences for so long and so we will be celebrating what is a significant milestone.”
