Dementia Disco

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 are going to run the discos every month, on the 4th Saturday of the month. They will be held at the Heaton Mersey Conservative Club from 5-7pm.
