Success for First Dementia-Friendly Pantomime

Success for First Dementia-Friendly Pantomime

Dementia Oxfordshire received complimentary tickets for their clients from The Oxford Playhouse to watch their first ever dementia-friendly pantomime.

The performance of ‘Robin Hood’ on 5th January was enjoyed by people living with dementia and their carers alike. Kathleen said “I could hear every word they said! It looked like everyone was enjoying themselves”. Kathleen’s son, Brian, said the show was a great tonic for his Mum.

Other carers echoed these positive sentiments.

The Pantomime was a delight, full of joy, warmth and energy and beautifully staged by the theatre. Everybody involved was brilliant from your attention to the individual comfort of your guests, to the actors vibrant and magnificent performance, and it is truly uplifting to see such talent. Again, thank you all very much.


Thanks for the panto tickets. We both really enjoyed the show. Just the lift we needed at the start of the year.


Encouraged by such positive feedback, Dementia Oxfordshire and The Oxford Playhouse have been discussing another dementia-friendly pantomime performance for next year and other ways they can work together to enable people living with dementia to access live theatre.
