Friendship Lunches

A Friendship Lunch is a monthly social event with live entertainment held at lovely restaurants/pubs and tickets include a delicious 2 course lunch. It is aimed at the elderly, lonely and/or socially isolated. The event is 'dementia friendly' and therefore ideal for those living with dementia and their families/carers, offering invaluable respite. The Friendship Lunch offers a wonderful opportunity for the elderly, lonely and/or socially isolated to meet old/make new friends, to dine and to have a dance in a warm and safe environment. At present prices range from £6.99 (Ball Crookes) to £15 (Oak House Restaurant Chapeltown).

To book please call the venues. For further info please contact:-
