The Memory Café is intended for people who are living with memory loss and for their carers. There will be a varied programme ranging from crafts, object-handling, speakers, games and nostalgia activities. The Museum Railway Buffet – with its 1930s décor – will be the venue. The café will take place outside normal Museum opening hours, meaning that it will be a calm, reassuring and safe environment for all visitors. There is no charge but the museum would appreciate all donations.
Memory Café meetings are held on the third Friday of the month starting at 10.30am and finishing at 12 noon.
Confirmed dates for the Memory café are August 16th: September 20th: October 18th: and November 15th
To ensure we can safeguard visitors, we will have to collect some basic contact details in case of emergencies, but also to be able to stay in contact and give you reminders of the next café.
