A magical festive show made with and for older adults, including those living with Dementia.

"We absolutely loved the performance. It was so different and the interaction was fab!"

Sharon McIntosh - Activity Coordinator
Harper Fields Care Home, Coventry

Wonderland sees three performers surprise, intrigue and delight, blending live music, dance, audience interactions and extravagant costumes to conjure up a sack-load of festive fun. A gift that keeps on giving, Wonderland includes records playing, snowball fights, tap dancing, violin playing, shiny bows galore and much much more! The show was made in collaboration with care home residents and staff to ensure it is highly engaging and inclusive for an older audience. It includes invitations for audiences to sing, dance and play along with performers, targeting different senses and appropriate adaptations have been considered for all participation elements.

Wonderland toured in December 2022 and 2023, and we are currently planning for touring to arts centres, care homes and hospital settings in 2024. We have a 5 person version of the show available for larger audiences.


I used to love going to the theatre but we don’t get chance to see things like this anymore

Care Home Resident

I have had such lovely feedback. You were amazing and the patients really enjoyed it.
