2017 LIVE EVENTS
On the last Tuesday of every month we host a relaxing afternoon event that's been developed in consultation with people with dementia and their companions / loved ones.
With live entertainment and refreshments, the programme changes every month, but varies to include dance, film, music and / or storytelling - and of course a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits!
You can book online or call 01786 466 666. If you would like any further information or would like to chat with someone about these events please get in touch with our Creative Learning Team on 01786 466627.
We've expanded our cinema programme so you can also enjoy films with your family and friends.
These screenings are open to everyone, but are designed to welcome people who benefit from a more relaxed environment - those with an Autistic Spectrum condition, sensory and communication disorders and people living with dementia. You can expect:
A relaxed attitude to noise and movement in the Filmhouse
Friendly staff on hand to make your visit as easy and enjoyable as possible
The lights to be on low
The volume to be turned down
No adverts or trailers before the film
We’re grateful to the funders who’ve supported our dementia-friendly provision, including The BIG Lottery’s Awards for All and The RS Macdonald Charitable Trust.
