This year we are excited to announce our partnership with St. Mark’s Care Home. We are taking part in project, supported by the Heritage Fund, which will culminate in a performance at Gateshead’s ‘Little Theatre’. Here the children will share a series of small performances inspired by their interaction with St. Mark’s residents. Groups of ten children will visit for three consecutive weeks and work with theatre makers to generate material for the performance.
Mrs Robinson has taken the lead with this project and took our first group this week. The children were able to put their new ‘Dementia Friends’ skills to good use. The attached images show how much both children and adults enjoyed the experience with theatre maker Poppy Crawshaw stating…..’I’ve never seen the residents in higher spirits!’
