This autumn The Point hosts a full programme of engaging events for older adults across film, theatre and dance.
This season The Point presents three nostalgic musicals as part of Accessible Cinema. La La Land, On the Town and The Wizard of Oz will be screened in the venue’s beautiful auditorium with the lights up a little and the sound down a touch to create a relaxed event. All tickets are just £5 which includes tea and biscuits during a 20 minute interval.
Participatory Autumn Events
Men and Women aged 50+ are invited to join Rétrospectif Class, a popular contemporary dance course for older adults. The weekly term-time class is available to all harbouring a passion to learn how to dance with sessions focusing on contemporary technique. Participants are encouraged to experiment with their own creativity in this freeing course led by professional dancer KJ Mortimer.
On Sunday 1st October The Point celebrates national Older People’s Day with an interactive Tea Dance. The event will feature traditional swing music from the 1940s, 50s and 60s in a nostalgic afternoon that invites you to come along and reminisce as the Café Bar serves up delicious tea and homemade cake.
This autumn the venue presents Dance for Parkinson’s. This relaxed course invites people living with the condition, their families and carers to The Point to share in creativity and the joy of movement in a friendly, supportive and safe environment.
As part of the venue’s Wellbeing strand, older adults are also encouraged to attend an Introduction to Meditation course, led by Suna Imri. Suna has a wealth of experience in working with older people in the arts and will use her expertise to lead a gentle, guided session in a weekly Meditation that has been created to inspire a healthy, happy lifestyle for those wanting to live mindfully.

Finding Joy is a wordless production which tells the true story of a teenager’s decision to care for his grandmother with dementia, with humour, poignancy, and warmth.
