DEMENTIA FRIENDLY

As part of our Community Programme, we offer dementia friendly screenings. These are relaxed afternoon events for everyone to enjoy, especially those living with dementia and their carers. At these screenings the room is kept light and people can chat and move around if they wish.

Admission is free of charge and refreshments are also available at no cost. All films start at 2pm, doors open at 1.30pm.

To help us plan for numbers, please book in advance using the links below. We understand that things may change on the day and you may not be able to attend – that’s no problem, you won’t be letting us down.

Just so you know… the films are shown in a downstairs room – a lift is available. Also, toilets are immediately outside the room entrance. If you have any other questions please contact us.
