Dementia Friendly: Step Into My Parlour

Tue 27 Jun 2017


Join us for a relaxing afternoon that's been developed in consultation with people living with dementia, and their companions and loved ones.

£5 / Companion free of charge

With live entertainment and refreshments, our Dementia Friendly programme changes every month, but varies to include dance, film, music and / or storytelling - and of course there's always a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits on offer!

This Month: Tue 27 Jun, 2pm 

Enjoy music from Michelle Burke, an acclaimed singer from rural East Cork, Ireland. She has spent the best part of a decade living in Edinburgh where she has collaborated with many of the top artists working in the vibrant Scottish folk scene.

This show is a collection of songs from the Irish tradition mixed with stories, memories and tales in a quirky inviting parlour setting. Many of these tales came from a dusty scrapbook lying in the attic of their granddads workshop.
