Amongst those present will be Suffolk Museums with their Open The Doors cabinets, Suffolk Artlink with their Cube films created by young and old participants, Dean Parkin showing how words can be used creatively, ActivLives with their “Keep on Rocking” singing group and Boccia, Heather Edwards from Music Mirrors and how to create your own memory resource and David Jay from Alpha Films screening films made with Sue Ryder and Suffolk Age UK groups.
