The Wilson Art Gallery Exhibition


We have just had our private viewing of our artwork at the exhibition and it’s now open to the public until 29th July. Our residents have worked hard for many months creating artwork for this show and it was a very proud moment seeing their creations on the wall. If you get the chance, go along to the gallery to take a look at what our residents have created, showing that you can produce amazing works of art at any age and ability.

Little Apples Nursery

Tuesday 3rd July 2018 - 2:00pm

We are looking forward to having another visit from Little Apples Nursery as we host a Teddy Bears’ picnic. Our last visit from the nursery went really well with a handful of our residents reading a story to the children and showing them our interactive projector. On their second visit, they’ll be joining us in the garden for refreshments and a picnic in the sunshine.

Musical Moments

Tuesday 31st July 2018 - 2:00pm

Our residents are very excited to welcome back the lovely Rosie from Musical Moments! Armed with a plethora of props and music, Rosie delivers a sensory musical experience that gets our residents exploring sounds and movement from the comfort of their chairs – however some of the residents get up on their feet and start shaking their hips! On her last visit, she had the residents playing with multi-coloured scarves, a teddy bear, bubbles and shaky eggs. They had a wonderful time dancing and moving to the music of Elvis Presley, The Monkees and music from The King and I. Our residents always look forward to Musical Moments and it is a very well attended activity. All welcome!

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

Date tbc

We are delighted to welcome Sarah, the actress and singer performing the role of Little Voice, who will be coming to Thirlestaine Park to perform for our residents.

Sarah has nailed these impressions and has landed herself the famous role of Little Voice at the Barn Theatre in Cirencester. We are also going to be taking a few lucky residents to see the actual show at the theatre as well!

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01242 505 560 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
