Maggie, Lab Station member, said: ” Lab Station has been fun. It’s been good to have new activities to keep me busy and around other people. I’m not bored anymore and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in real life when we can meet up. For anyone looking to join I’d say just try it - everyone is really nice and friendly and makes you feel comfortable”.

Jack, leader of Lab Station, said: “I want us all to look at each other, notice each strand of hair, each twitching eyebrow - now turn your camera off, we’re going to sue the whiteboard to draw each of our faces from memory, you’ve got two minutes!”

“This is just one of the games we play at Lab Station. The best way to describe what we do, is creative game playing, it is scene creation, it’s becoming our own characters from random bits of clothing around the house, it’s working together to create short performances and importantly, it’s friends hanging together!”
