Day 9: Creative approaches to Dementia care

Champagne Charlie1Tuesday 2 June: Today Islington Museum hosts the first session of Pop Goes the Weasel a project especially for people who have just been diagnosed with early stage Dementia. Tuesdays: 2, 9 & 30 June. Mondays: 15 & 22 June –  2-4.30pm

Islington Museum is working with musician Julian West to bring to life some of the fantastic artefacts in our collection. Islington has a long history of famous singers and songs. It was home to many influential music-hall all venues including Sadler’s Wells and Collins’s Music Hall. In this project we will be singing some music-hall songs, teaching each other tunes we know, and even writing some new words together as a group. Whether you’re a experienced singer or new to the idea, it will be a very relaxed group with an emphasis on enjoyment, self-expression and taking part. If you are interested in joining the group please contact Kara Jarrold at Sense on: 020 7014 9365 / 07771 845570 or e-mail: kara.jarrold@sense.org.uk
