ASH Yorkshire CIC

The Lodge Cafe, Bowling Park, is a new café and community hub opening in Summer 2018. This social enterprise is overseen by ASH Community Interest Company with the backing of three major community groups.

We aim to make Bowling Park a destination for local residents and non-resident alike, thereby increasing use of the Park, drawing the community together, and generating hope. The centre-piece of the development is the café itself. This enterprise will offer a high-quality customer experience, including coffee, tea, cakes, meals and a small children’s play area. It will also provide opportunities for apprenticeships and volunteering for promising individuals identified by partner community organisations (with these programmes delivered in concert with them).

Our site incorporates three other community spaces: a separate classroom, to be used as a base for outdoor activities in the Park, an attractive lounge and celebration venue upstairs, and a small office space. These spaces will be available to hire by local community groups, businesses and government.

The launch of the Lodge Cafe is the culmination of six years of work by local residents: negotiating the Community Asset Transfer of the building from Bradford Council, securing planning permission and raising £400,000 for structural work and renovations. Profits from the venture will be ploughed back into the local community.

We run an extensive programme of courses and workshops, which cater for leaders of all kinds of singing, age groups and experience using a network of the best choral leadership trainers in the country. Our choral conducting courses run from beginner to advanced levels. In addition our 10 regional committees put on a wide range of regional events, ranging from singing and repertoire days to more social occasions, all of which also provide opportunities to network, compare experience, and seek advice from others working in the same field. This all comes together at the Annual Convention, which takes place in a different regional centre each year and attracts over 200 delegates from all parts of the choral spectrum. Members have access to the The Podium, the members' section of our website, which includes access to the abcd digital version of Choir and Organ, the opportunity to network and access to Mastersinger Online, an exclusive growing library of articles covering repertoire, choir and composer profiles, technique and more.
So, whether you've found yourself unexpectedly in charge of leading singing in your school, or you're an experienced choral leader, abcd is the ideal organisation to help you get the most from your conducting.
Our vision is of a world where well-led choral singing enriches everyone's lives and where abcd enables every leader of choral singing in the UK easily to access appropriate support for their development."
