There are lots of fun and (mostly) free dementia-friendly activities happening across the borough. The events include:

  • opportunities to touch rare objects at the Museum of Croydon to transport people back in time. 
  • a chance to watch a movie in a dementia-friendly setting, with the lights on at The David Lean Cinema.
