Tea Dance Returns

Seated dancing session


Christmas song singalong

On the 10th of October the Portico gallery in association with Just Sing hosted an Intergenerational Tea Dance aimed at uniting our elderly population of West Norwood and surrounding areas with some younger contemporaries with a focus on it being a Dementia Friendly Event.

We had lots of delicious cake, some stunning dancing, and live music performed by associates of the gallery. It was run entirely by volunteers who felt that an event like this was needed locally. We hope to run one monthly starting in January.

Our next Tea Dance has been awarded funding from AGE UK as part of their Warm and Well Scheme! This means we can provide TWO minibuses to collect people and take them home afterwards. We …will also have representatives from Age UK and other local services to advise our elderly population on ways to stay Warm and keep Well throughout the winter months.
