Abbeygate Cinema threw an afternoon of festive fun for dementia-sufferers and their carers on Monday, with a dementia-friendly screening of White Christmas.

The day was supported by Gatehouse Dementia Hub and local councillors, with Mayor Terry Clements, his wife Vivienne and ex-Mayor Patrick Chung attending the event.

Andrea Holmes, marketing manager at Abbeygate Cinema, said: “We’re thrilled that these screenings have become so popular and are being embraced by both care homes in the vicinity and the local community. They give a great experience to someone suffering with dementia and some much needed respite for their carers.”

At such a screening, the lights are left on low and audience members can move around, talk or sing along as they wish.
