‘Our Day Out’ is an award-winning programme of free, inclusive, high-quality creative workshops for older people that take place in nine locations across Norfolk. (Attleborough, Dereham, Great Massingham, Great Yarmouth, Hunstanton, South Wootton, Thetford, Watton and Wells-next-the-Sea)
The programme improves wellbeing, decreases feelings of isolation and loneliness, and creates new social connections by bringing people together. The sessions are open to all older people, including carers, those living with a dementia or other long-term health conditions, and those who may feel lonely or isolated.

‘Now I’m 87, I use a crutch and I started to get a bit of pain in my shoulder. After a while it became worse and worse, but the first time we waved our arms around in a dance session, the pain actually went. I feel more or less cured.
I felt that life was shutting me in the house. I have very few friends left so it’s really nice to meet people who have the same interests and like coming together to share in music and dance.’
(Sally, Our Day Out participant)
The programme is currently funded Breckland District Council, Borough Council of Kingâ€™s Lynn and West Norfolk and Norfolk County Council,
