Mind the Gap performed at Salisbury Medical Centre and Gracewell Salisbury Manor
Salisbury Playhouse’s drama group for people aged 55+, Mind the Gap, performed a special production at Salisbury Medical Practice in Wilton Road and at local care home Gracewell Salisbury Manor on Friday 31 March.
At the End of the Pier was a lively, entertaining performance with drama, music, singing and dancing.
The show was full of funny sketches, including fortune tellers, carousels, Punch and Judy and, of course, visits from those pesky seagulls who want your chips!
At the End of the Pier was performed to invited audiences and was particularly tailored to be enjoyed by people living with dementia and their carers.
Katy Gillingham, Health Promotion Assistant at Salisbury Medical Practice, said, “We were really excited to host the Mind the Gap performance of ‘At the End of the Pier’. It was a great opportunity for patients to see something different and exciting, in an environment they are familiar with. We hope to host more events like this in the future.”
Mind the Gap is a lively, social group for ages 55+ that meets at Salisbury Playhouse every Friday morning in term time for workshops in a variety of arts and devise performances for the local community.
