October Events at Leycester House
We’re incredibly excited for the arrival of October, as we have four fantastic events lined up. Will you be joining us for some top-notch entertainment as the evenings get darker?

We’re starting the month off with Dean Thomas, who is most certainly a Leycester House favourite. Dean’s a wonderful performer and he’ll be singing songs from the Rat Pack and other hits from the 1960s.

Next up is Marcus, another firm favourite here in our home! Marcus always entertains everyone and engages with his audience, so it’s sure to be a great evening.

On 17th October, Bob Gessey will be here! Bob’s going to dazzle us with his voice and guitar, playing the songs of Sinatra, Rat Pack favourites and much more. Bob never fails to put on a show.

Last but not least, Gemma Louise Doyle will be back here at Leycester House! Gemma’s a fantastic singer with a four-octave range, and she has performed in Las Vegas, Europe and London’s West End. Come along for a great evening.

If you’d like to join us at any of our October events, please RSVP to events@leycesterhouse.com or 01926 357210. As always, our events are free of charge and include complimentary refreshments. Food options are subject to change.


Motivation to Music
Everyone looks forward to Wendy’s weekly visit as when Wendy arrives, it’s time for Motivation to Music! Wendy is absolutely brilliant with all the people who take part in her classes, and she incorporates her reflexology knowledge into all her sessions. Wendy gets creative with the exercises involved, and even balloons are utilised to encourage movement! With some fun music to get everyone in the mood for movement, Motivation to Music always goes down a treat. We can’t wait for Wendy to come back next week!


End of summer BBQ
What better way to end the summer than with beautiful BBQ? We had a brilliant time rounding off the sunny season with all sorts of delicious food and drink, and although the weather wasn’t on our side, it didn’t stop us smiling. It was a fantastic event and it was great to see everyone having so much fun.


Cheese and wine tasting
Last week, we held a brilliant event here at Leycester House, dedicated to cheese and wine! We’re huge fans of both halves of this perfect partnership, so it was a pleasure to hand out all sorts of different cheeses for everyone to try, along with a wide variety of wines from around the world. We’ll most definitely be holding another night like this in the future, so keep an eye out to find out when it might be!


September Events at Leycester House
Well, do we have a great month planned here at Leycester House! September’s going to be great, as we have four fantastic events lined up for you here in our care home in Warwick.

On Thursday 5th September, Marcus is coming to see us all – he never fails to put on a good show, so we can’t wait to welcome him back here at Leycester House.

Next up is Sam Southall on Thursday 12th; Sam’s another Leycester House favourite, singing all sorts of songs that we know and love.

On 19th September, we have a familiar face coming to Leycester House but for the first time ever on a Thursday evening! It’s Tony Sparks, who is well-liked by residents here and is a very talented performer.

Rounding off the month is Richard King, a popular entertainer here at Leycester House in Warwick! We really hope you can join us.

All events take place from 6.30-8.30pm and as always, entertainment and refreshments are complimentary. Please RSVP to events@leycesterhouse.com or call 01926 357210 to let us know you’re coming along. We hope to see you very soon!


Pottery party
One of our favourite monthly activities is our pottery party! This activity really gets everyone’s creative juices flowing, and residents have the opportunity to showcase their talent. We not only enjoy pottery but also painting and drawing! It’s a great social event and residents love showing off their creations to visiting friends and family members each week.


A day out at Moseley Old Hall
On Tuesday, we went all the way to Moseley for a fabulous day out – we visited the National Trust’s Moseley Old Hall! It’s a beautiful building, an Elizabethan farmhouse with so many stories to tell. In fact, Moseley Old Hall actually saved King Charles II in 1651 after he fled the battle of Worcester; Cromwell’s troops came looking for him but didn’t find him hiding in the priest hole. Everyone found it incredibly interesting learning all about the farmhouse’s rich history.

The gardens are beautiful, including an intricate knot garden, and the café is wonderful. We spent our day looking around the house and gardens, finishing off with a nice lunch in the tearoom.


Lollipop Ponies
On 15th August, Lollipop Ponies came back to Leycester House! We absolutely love it when the ponies come to visit, and it’s great to see the people living here grinning from ear to ear. The ponies enjoy visiting residents in the bistro, and they can even trot along to residents’ bedrooms too! It’s always a great day when Lollipop Ponies come to play.
