Dementia Friends Session
Monday 12th March 2018
Museum Manager Kate will be running a Dementia Friends session here at the Museum.
This is an initiative launched by the Alzheimers Society to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding around dementia. The session is free and open to all. The aim is to transform the way the nation thinks, talks and acts about dementia.
Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends programme to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.

Saturday 31st March 2018 2pm-4pm
A performance by Tom Doughty seamlessly blends blues, pop, jazz, folk and world music influences with his own improvisational approach to create a unique experience for the listener. An instantly recognisable lap slide guitar style, passionate vocals and a relaxed, wryly humorous line in stage patter take the audience on a diverse musical journey. A self taught guitarist from the age of seven, Tom reinvented a way to play guitar after a serious injury in 1974 left him with limited use of his hands -but to hear him, you would have no idea. With four critically acclaimed CDs to his name, Tom performs regularly in the UK and Europe at clubs, concert halls and festivals, and has toured in the USA and Canada.
