Dementia-Friendly Programme

Classic films in a friendly setting

This Autumn and Winter the Barn invites people living with dementia and their family and/or personal assistants to come and enjoy a wonderful programme of cinema.

Cinema can provide a powerful way to reconnect with memories and make new ones. Watch classic films (old and new!) in a safe, relaxed setting, with the lights up a little and sound down a touch. Each screening will include a short interval with a break for tea and biscuits. The extremely reasonable £3 ticket price includes interval refreshments!

Our popular classic matinees are open to all but are specifically designed for people living with dementia and their supporters.

To book a ticket call 01330-825431 (Tues - Sat 12noon - 4pm). Email with any questions.
