‘Our Day Out’,
the fortnightly dementiafriendly workshop project, continues with a wide range of free activities to engage older people across Norfolk. Delivered by professionally trained arts practitioners, musicians and dancers, the project is run by arts and community development charity Creative Arts East.
The sessions welcome all older people, and are supportive of those living with early to mid-stage dementia ( and carers), as well as older people living with long-term health conditions, or those who feel isolated.
The ‘Our Day Out’ groups are based in Attleborough, Watton, Dereham, Thetford, North Walsham and Wells.
So far in 2017, the groups have been enjoying making-music by combining electronic and acoustic instruments as well as creating uplifting songs. The groups have also been enjoying fun and dance sessions with Green Candle and Glass House Dance Company, devised to benefit the whole body with gentle exercise. OCTOBER DATES ARE: Watton Christian
