Taking place throughout each month, Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre offer a variety of social events designed for those living with dementia.

Brew and Blether offers companionship, chat, and of course, tea and cake. Held each Wednesday, join them in the theatre’s Gin Bar on 31 January, 28 February and 27 March 2024.

If you love music, be sure not to miss Together In Song. Participants have the chance to celebrate their stories through music with Edinburgh’s dementia inclusive Forget Me Notes choir. Join them on 02 February or 01 March 2024.

Or if you fancy some creative music-making, Tea and ‘Jam’ will be music to your ears. A family-friendly event, bring along your own instruments, song suggestions and get ready to sing the morning away. Tea and ‘Jam’ takes place in-person and online (on Zoom) on 29 January, 26 February and 25 March 2024.

Tickets for all events are free but should be booked in advance online. A ticket is required for each attendee, including any carer(s).
