The Dressing Room is the café and arts space at The Edge and also a dedicated catering and restaurant training facility for adults with learning difficulties. Trainees have the opportunity to learn skills which can be applied in a real working environment and also transferred and applied to other areas of life.

A space to relax with a cappuccino while you wait for a class, grab a pre-theatre meal, or simply relax with a piece of cake while enjoying the surroundings, we hope that The Dressing Room is an inspiring and tranquil haven.

With thanks to funding from The Big Lottery Fund and The Oglesby Charitable Trust, The Dressing Room is also a dedicated catering and restaurant training facility for adults with learning difficulties. Trainees have the opportunity to learn skills which can be applied in a real working environment and also transferred and applied to other areas of life.
