Dementia Disco

PLEASE NOTE WHILST THE SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES ARE IN PLACE ALL EVENTS WILL BE HELD ONLINE. PLEASE CONTACT NICK FOR FURTHER DETAILS.

The Dementia Disco will be a place to come and enjoy your favourite music and maybe even have a dance. We'll be encouraging people to get involved with choosing the music to ensure we cover all tastes from rock n roll to disco. We want to make sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable.

We have been doing a lot of thinking about how to respond to the coronavirus outbreak, and we have been looking into potential ways to hold a virtual Dementia Disco remotely using video conferencing software.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been to one of our discos before, or if you’re not living with dementia; if you’re just feeling like you need to see some different (some pretty funny-looking) faces, and are prepared to put up with some wildly inadequate IT skills, then get in touch, please email us at dementiadisco@gmail.com to find out more.
