I’ve just been invited to perform a series of Roy Orbison sets at this year’s Alzheimer’s Show in London on 9-10 June at Olympia on behalf of the website, Dementia Help. I’ll be performing Roy’s best known hits as well as a few other songs from the sixties at the two-day event which helps family carers and those living with dementia to access help and advice under one roof. Come and see me sing in Dementia Help’s Carers Corner area at the show (a networking area for carers) where I’ll perform three sets on both days. See me sing at 11.00, 13.30 and 15.00 on 9 and 10 June. My videographer will be filming some of my performances on the day too, so I’ll be sharing some of the highlights on my Facebook page.
It’s an honour to be asked to perform at The Alzheimer’s Show, as dementia is a disease that affects over 850,000 in the UK and is sadly on the increase. It seems that everyone knows someone affected by the condition in some way. Music reportedly has a positive effect on those living with dementia, with singing known to unlock memories, engage the brain and improve mood. I’m hoping my performance will help to create a positive atmosphere and help carers and their loved ones relax, unwind and enjoy themselves.
Roy Orbison’s songs are so well known I’m sure most of the people attending the show and watching me perform will be familiar with the words and can join in.
To see me perform, you’ll need to buy tickets for The Alzheimer’s Show and come along to Dementia Help’s Carers Corner area at Olympia, located next to the top left coffee area at the show. To buy show tickets, visit https://alzheimersshow.co.uk
