Now That’s What Ataxia UK calls Lockdown – Virtual activity groups for the Ataxia Community

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected all of our lives, and lockdowns and social distancing have meant we are now unable to do many of the social activities that we used to enjoy.

At Ataxia UK, we wanted to create social activities that are safe but help the ataxia community to stay connected with each other. So we created Now That’s What Ataxia UK Calls Lockdown – weekly social activities that you can join from the comfort of your own home. The sessions are created and hosted by the InControl team and our wonderful volunteers, and cover a range of topics from the world of Film, TV, Music and Books.

These sessions are held every Friday from 1pm-2pm on Zoom, so you can even participate in your lunch break if you’re working from home. We watch clips and then discuss them, so it’s not essential to have watched or read the film/TV/music/book in advance.

Here is a list of the upcoming sessions, simply click the link to register:

Friday 26 February – Bridgerton (TV Series)

Friday 5 March – Theme Music from Bond films: Part 2 (Music)

Friday 12 March – Rebecca (Book & 1940 Film)

Friday 19 March -Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey (Film, 2020)

Friday 26 March – The Vicar of Dibley (TV Series)

 We hope these sessions will be informative, entertaining and leave people feeling a little less isolated while at home.

If you would like more information on the sessions or support with using Zoom, please contact We look forward to seeing you there!
