February Events at Leycester House
With four events taking place here at Leycester House this month, there’s sure to be something to entertain everyone – which of our Thursday evenings this month will take your fancy?

We’re kicking things off with a visit from a wonderful singer, Sam Southall, who performs songs from the 1950s all the way through to present day. We’re then delighted to be welcoming Paulo Pinto back into Leycester House, here to dazzle us with his English, Italian and Spanish songs! Paulo covers everything from the Rat Pack and Michael Bublé to Motown and Soul, so it’s sure to be a great treat for Valentine’s Day.

Johnny Rickard will then be joining us to perform his tribute act featuring the songs of Elvis Presley and Neil Diamond, so there will be plenty to sing along to at this event. Last but most certainly not least, we’re delighted to have Away with the Fairies back for another evening to perform their folk-based music mixed with comedy, which is fun for all ages.

A light buffet will be served at all our events this February too and as always, everything is completely free of charge – please RSVP by calling 01926 357210 or emailing events@leycesterhouse.com.

A wonderful day at Warwick Races
To round off September, we decided to take a trip to Warwick Races on Tuesday, and thankfully the weather was on our side. The sun was shining, but we still got all wrapped up to stay warm, as there was quite a strong breeze by the track.

With seven events taking place across the afternoon, including Novices’ Hurdle, Novices’ Handicap Chase and even a Mares’ Handicap Hurdle, there was plenty to watch, and it was made extra-special with our front-row spot.

Everyone had a brilliant day – some residents decided to have a flutter, and some of the horses came in for us, which was so exciting when we saw them run across the finish line in front of us. Bethan, part of the Leycester House team, managed to win over £200!

It was also Phyllis’ birthday, so we all had a piece of birthday cake when we got back to Leycester House. It really was a wonderful day. And as we were lucky enough to win, maybe we should head back again sometime and place our bets!


Helping to tackle a global challenge
Last Friday marked World Alzheimer’s Day, so we celebrated at Leycester House with a proper party. As we all know, dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face around the world, so we believe that helping to raise money to support research and campaigning is a good way to go.

It was a fun afternoon for everyone involved, with live music from Betsy from a bygone era here at Leycester House to entertain us all – Betsy sang Swing, Jazz, Blues, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Wartime, Music Hall and more, putting on a tremendous performance. We also held a charity raffle, served non-alcoholic cocktails, cupcakes and nibbles.

The home was full of love and laughter, with lots of residents, their family members and friends all having a great time singing along and chatting together, with about 50 people here in total! And we made the conscious decision to hold our celebrations on the second floor of the home to ensure that all our residents living with dementia could participate.

It really was a great event, thank you to everyone who came and contributed.
