Our Day Out
'Our Day Out' is a fantastic programme, funded by the Spirit of 2012 Trust, which aims to engage older people in Norfolk with culture and creativity through participatory music and dance sessions, whilst in a dementia friendly environment.
It runs twice a month in Dereham, Watton, Attleborough, North Walsham and we are now offering taster sessions in Thetford and Wells-next-the-sea too.
Each month there is something new to experience. So far in the programme we have had African drumming, poetry performance and workshops, live music, cinema afternoons and more!
Throughout October till December we have some fantastic music making workshops taking place, led by experienced musicians Paul and Les. Here are the dates below:
Thursday 1st December 2pm-4pm and Thursday 15th December 2pm-4pm (Watton)
Thursday 8th December 1:15pm-3:15pm and Friday 23rd December 1:15pm-3:15pm (Attleborough)
Friday 9th December 2pm-4pm and Wednesday 21st December 2pm-4pm (Dereham)
Friday 9th December 10am-12pm and Friday 23rd December 10am-12pm (Thetford taster sessions)
From January - March we will be welcoming Green Candle Dance company who will be delivering a series of movement and dance workshops. All abilities welcome, just remember to wear something comfortable. Can be done seated or standing.
We are always looking for more people to join the fun, so if you are interested in coming along please do get in touch on either 01953 713390 or by emailing email@example.com
Spirit of 2012 was established by the Big Lottery Fund in November 2013 with an endowment of £47m. Spirit invests in happiness. Their vision is that all people are equally empowered to get out, be involved and feel better. They believe in equal chances; they're working to ensure the spirit that radiated from the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics is felt across the UK. By connecting events to communities across the country, they ensure our investment is of local, regional and national benefit. They tackle isolation and disadvantage by supporting those providing opportunities in sports and physical activity, culture and the arts, social action and volunteering.
