The Gillingham Dementia Friends to hold their first ‘Music & Memories’ afternoon Tea Concert.
Music is the one thing that unites everyone, whether it’s the person living with the dementia, or their close family and loved ones. A recent Cake Concert sold out, and so it was decided to hold another lovely concert which will take place at The Olive Bowl, Gillingham, on Sunday November 26th. 3.30pm-5.30pm. An event which the whole family can enjoy.
‘Music & Memories’ really conjures up what this concert will be all about. The Gillingham ‘Brass & Wind Band’ will be supported by the Community Choir, the Junior School choir and Georgie Girl, a well-known local artist who has been forever popular. It was decided to hold it in the afternoon so everyone can enjoy tea & cake while also enjoying the variety of music to bring back those memories; which everyone will be encouraged to sing along to if they want.
Tickets £5, to include tea & cake, can be purchased at ‘Scenes’ in the High Street or at The Gillingham Town Hall. (On the door if not previously sold out). Gillingham businesses have donated some lovely raffle prizes which will be drawn by our mayor, Belinda Ridout, and someone will be the holder of a very lucky ticket number. This event has been sponsored jointly by Orchard Park and Farnfields Solicitors, so all proceeds will be used to help those living with dementia.
