Barry Juckes

Thursday 10th January 2019 - 11:00am

The ever popular Barry Juckes is coming to perform for our residents again. He will be providing a set full of music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Our residents love it when Barry Juckes performs for them – he never fails to entertain! While Barry is singing, his wife interacts and dances with the residents and they really enjoy the atmosphere.

Yeuey Qing

Friday 18th January 2019 - 2:00pm

Yeuey Qing is a very talented singer and is Cheltenham’s best loved street busker. Yeuey has a beautiful baritone voice that is reminiscent of Frank Sinatra, and he sings lots of songs that our residents know and love. He is definitely a crowd pleaser and we’re very excited to welcome him to Thirlestaine Park and we hope that some relatives will join us for the occasion as well!

Burns Night

Friday 25th January 2019 - From 12:00pm

As part of our 2019 ‘Countries of the World’ programme, what better country to celebrate than Scotland in the month of January – the month of Burns’ Night! Scotland may not be far away from home, but it has a rich culture that we are keen to honour here at Thirlestaine Park. Our chef will be preparing a haggis, and we have bagpipe player, Sandy Walker, coming in to play in and address the haggis. We are looking forward to celebrating this old Scottish tradition!
