A Life More Ordinary: Storytelling & Dance

The Dukes, Lancaster LA1 1QE

Our pioneering project, A Life More Ordinary, gives people living with dementia and memory loss more choice, more control and greater access to leisure and cultural opportunities at The Dukes. Crucially, it is a project which takes place in ‘ordinary’ public settings, not in care or medical settings. The intention is that people can feel that they are able to come to an ‘ordinary’ social event, alongside other members of the public.

Our creative sessions are fun afternoons, led by an experienced facilitator.  No experience is necessary, and they are relaxed sessions where you can meet people and spend time trying out a creative activity.


Monday 9 July

2.30pm – 4.00pm

Regulars Steve Fairclough and Anna Daly team together to deliver movement based stories linked to local themes.

Guaranteed laughter and surprises!

All creative sessions are FREE to attend, but places are limited so please book in advance. Tickets are to book online or by calling our Box Office on 01524 598500.

Please note that pastoral care is not provided at A Life More Ordinary events – a friend, family member or carer must also attend.
