Glad the Festival is up and running. Unless I tell other seniors they have no knowledge of it. Am continually on the look out for local events. Am booked for "Soapbox" at Tate July 9 th led by smashin...g artist. By chance I found events two or three years ago. Starts in July 2014. Run by goodwill. I make the bunting. Capital Age needs to wake up Waltham Forest to join in. No word on the street: no brochure. See More

Earlier this year we were delighted to work in partnership with Capital Age Festival to deliver A Right Old Song & Dance for and with residents at James House, ...Northwood. This care home is managed by the Abbeyfield Society and has 12 residents aged 95 to 103 (in fact, a resident celebrated her 103rd birthday on our second last session there!).

This was part of a bigger project conceived by CAF to promote the wellbeing of older people living in care through opportunities to take part in creative activities. It was generously supported by the GLA. We trained 5 volunteers (from Harefield Breathing Support Group and Singing for Breathing) who co-facilitated the project with our two artists, Estelle Buckridge and Laura Heywood. Over 7 weeks we shared memories and stories with residents through song and creative movement, resulting in a well, A Right Old Song and Dance! We will return with our volunteers in 2017.

It is week 3 tomorrow at James House and we'll be exploring work and occupations with residents. Looking forward to another fun session with Estelle Buckridge and our volunteers.

We have just started our first project in a care home, A Right Old Song and Dance. rb&hArts, in partnership with Capital Age Festival is taking music and dance... into James House in Northwood. It has been supported by Greater London Authority who awarded Capital Age Festival funding to bring participatory arts to older people in the outer boroughs. We are grateful for their support.

It is led by two professional artists (Estelle Buckridge and Laura Heywood) and we’ll be supported by 5 volunteers who will come with us on each visit. The care home has 12 residents (aged between 90 and 103) and on Wednesday we’ll be exploring where are you from/where did you grow up with them and staff.

Meantime, enjoy some photos from our training session with the volunteers last week. We’ll let you know how it is going.

Capital Age Festival is changing! We are not creating a festival this year. Instead, we are undertaking a phase of organisational development - to ensure we are well placed to reach more of London's most vulnerable older people. Watch this space for more details.
