Dementia Well-being Day is returning for its second year this May.

The event will help people living with dementia, as well as their families and carers, discover what’s available locally. You’ll be able to meet lots of NHS, private, community and voluntary services who can support you in a number of ways.

Just like last year, the Wellbeing Day will have a few surprises. There’ll also be activities and entertainment including:


• Wheel Chair Dancers
• Hut People
• Art Competition
• Visual Presentations / Videos
• Music - Choirs/Groups
• Movement to Music
• Tea Dance
• Speed Dating with Services/Professionals
• 5 Senses
• Vintage fashion
• Images from Hull throughout the 50s, 60,s and 70s

The activities don’t stop there! Running up to the event, as part of the 2017 City of Culture celebrations, Butterflies Memory Loss Support group are inviting people with dementia and their carers to take part in an art competition. The artworks will be judged by Kirsten Simister, curator at The Feren’s Art Gallery, and the winner will be announced at the event on 24 May.
