FAMILIES living with dementia can enjoy a trip down memory lane with the latest Wychavon District Council’s musical workshop.

Carol Sampson and her songs from the 50s, 60s and 70s will be the highlight of the latest show on Wednesday (January 16) at Pershore’s Number 8 Community Arts Centre from 1.30pm to 3pm.

The workshops have been running since 2014 with a variety of music genres represented including Latin American, contemporary, classical and folk.

Jenny Davis, arts development officer at Wychavon, said: “I’m delighted these workshops and all of our musicians have committed to such an entertaining programme.

“The feedback we’ve been receiving shows that the workshops have a very positive impact on people by reducing isolation, getting them involved and helping them to make new friends.”

Admission is £2, call the Number 8 Box Office on 01386 555488 or visit to book.
