Mayflower Court care home residents enjoy A Christmas Carol screening
Mayflower Court residents recently gathered for an extra-special screening of the festive classic ‘A Christmas Carol’, streamed live from The Old Vic Theatre.
With a normal trip to the theatre not possible this year, the residents and staff at Mayflower Court took the opportunity to instead bring the theatre to them. A lounge area was turned into an auditorium, with residents even provided with tickets to hand over at the entrance. They were also able to pick up a glass of bubbly as well as a programme, before being shown to their seats.
Mayflower Court Home Manager, Sam Henderson, said:
Many of our residents enjoyed visiting the theatre before the pandemic, and as they can’t currently get to the theatre we decided to bring the theatre to them! Everyone enjoyed the live stream performance accompanied by a glass of bubbly, and it really helped get us all in the festive mood. We have a wide range of activities and events at Mayflower Court, and this is just one of our many themed events during the festive season.
