The Bakehouse Community Arts and Saraband Books present a film specifically designed for care home residents during Book Week Scotland. It can be accessed via www.thebakehouse.info(this will open in a new window) and will be available on demand to care home staff whenever they choose to show it.

Act 1: The Bakehouse Community Arts brings you A LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF: A feast of poetry and related songs residents have enjoyed when younger. Singer and performer Tony Bonning performs songs and poems alongside Scottish-based writers, reading poems loved by older family or friends.

Act 2: Saraband Books brings you A NIGHT OF SONG AND STORY: Stories, poetry and songs to warm hearts and make residents smile as the nights get colder. Scottish authors Olga Wojtas and Chris Dolan will be sharing stories and poetry, interspersed with traditional music from Chris Dolan, Kirsty and Annie Grace, Karine Polwart and Corinna Hewa.

If you would like to share the film at a specific care home (perhaps you work there or know a resident) please contact aisling@saraband.net(this will open in a new window).
