Get your glad rags on and Charleston your way to a 1920s-themed evening of jazz and mocktails at Haviland House Day Centre in Goring on Sea. The social event is being hosted by social care charity, Guild Care, on Wednesday 24th April from 5.30 to 8pm and will be exclusively for people living with dementia and their caregivers.

Sarah Johnson, team leader for Guild Care at Haviland House Day Centre, said, “Anybody and everybody living with dementia is welcome to come along to our free Spring social event with a 1920s twist. There’ll be a mixologist creating delicious mocktails (cocktails without the alcohol), a delicious finger buffet, and a backdrop of lively music from the age of jazz. 

“We’ve got lots of ideas for decorating the whole space in art deco style and the staff and I will be getting our fancy dress frocks on. We’d love our guests to dress up too if they’re happy to. It should be a lot of fun for carers and cared for people to enjoy time out together.”

The professional mixologist, Aaron Wilson, will give a demonstration of how to expertly combine flavours to create delicious non-alcoholic versions of well-known cocktails such as the Sidecar and Pina Colada. Guest will have a chance to get hands on to create their own concoctions to compete with the classics. 

Haviland House Day Centre offers a range of social events for people living with dementia and their caregivers, from daily activities to regular Saturday Afternoon Teas, Dementia Choir and Sunday Lunches. 

Sarah added, “We wanted to bring something new and fresh to people living with dementia and those caring for a loved one, so this Wednesday Social Event seemed the perfect opportunity. We’re planning a Las Vegas casino night in the summer so that should be fun as well!”

There’s no cost to attend the 1920s Cocktail Party but places are limited so must be booked in advance. To reserve your space, email [email protected] or call the Guild Care jazz team on 01903 866130.
