‘Grandma Remember Me’ by Belinda Lazenby is a beautiful story about a special relationship between a Grandma and her Granddaughter. It looks at the wider impact Alzheimer’s has on the family and shows how it is still possible to live well with dementia and maintain an emotional connection with the person you love, despite the disease,
Exploring the importance of memories and relationships within our lives and how to keep and treasure them, ‘Grandma Remember Me’ is a high quality piece of theatre, very powerful, realistic and deeply moving,
‘An outstanding piece of theatre.’ Richard Hall – Oldham Coliseum;
‘A play everyone should see. Intimate theatre at its best.’ Frank Rhurmund – Art Critic Cornishman
A performance of the play is to be presented at the Houses of Parliament on Monday 9th December, which is part of a tour of ‘Grandma Remember Me’ covering widespread venues. We are pleased to be able to offer such a prestigious piece of work to our local people.

Refreshments will be offered to those who wish to join in the Dementia Friends awareness programme, which is informal and fun. It takes about 45 minutes and is free of charge.
