You want to create a Memory Moment and need some help or perhaps you need a band, a choir, some actors, a tea party etc.
We will be developing a directory of organisations who can put on Memory Moments here. If you or your organisation could help please send us your information and we will slowly build this into a library for your reference.
The first planned event is being put on by the Dave Egerton Band – so here is a little information about them. The band was formed in 1983 by Dave Egerton as the Altrincham Concert Band and that remains the official name although for the most part we play as The Dave Egerton Band. In 2003 Dave passed away. The band continues though under our Musical Director Tim Ashcroft and Chairman Graham Truffet. The band plays a wide variety of music covering the last 90 years from 1920 onwards! So although we are indeed Manchester’s leading amateur big band we cover a wide variety from swing to rock to ballads from all the various decades of most of the last century. The band puts on Big Band Nights, Charity events, public and private concerts mainly around the Manchester area.
The National Cycle Museum houses hundreds of cycles in period settings, including examples from 1819 through to the present day. It also displays rare components and accessories from this period. Older people like to visit the National Cycle Museum in LLandrindod Wells in Wales. They love to reminisce when they see the bicycles and memorabilia. Those living with Dementia are welcome - no charge for carer. Wheelchair friendly/ facilities.
The fascinating history of one of Cheshire’s most attractive and historic towns is brought to life by Nantwich Museum, founded in January 1980. Located in Pillory Street, at the heart of the town, the museum has main galleries telling the story of Nantwich through the ages – Roman salt making, Tudor Nantwich’s Great Fire, the Civil War Battle of Nantwich (1644) and the more recent shoe and clothing industries. At the Museum we have been developing a dementia session which takes place on the first Monday of each month at 2pm. We take a different theme each time, sometimes have a making activity and always have refreshments, giving people time to chat and meet others. We look forward to welcoming you.
