A series of monthly Memory Cafés for people living with dementia and their carers.
These friendly, drop in sessions are designed to provide support for people living with Dementia, their carers and family members. They are a place to find support, share concerns, celebrate and take part in arts activities in a comfortable environment. All activities are led by a professional artist and are programmed with the help of the Alzheimer's Society, with the aim to stimulate the brain and encourage conversation.
Sessions will also feature home-made cake, tea and coffee, all set in our friendly Balcony Bar space decked out with table-cloths, flowers and vintage china! each session will last 2 hours and there is no need to pre-book, but if you could let a member of our Front of House team know if you are attending, it will be appreciated.
Duration: 10.30am - 12.30pm
