The Neuro Drop-In Centre, a local Lancaster charity based next to Lancaster Farms which helps people with neurological conditions is holding its third annual mini festival called Neurobury (their homage to Glastonbury) on Saturday 25th June.

The festival amongst other things will include live music (5 local bands), outdoor activities, a petting zoo, fun party games, car boot sale and craft stalls, hot food and a bouncy castle. The festival will also include an international presence through the Digital Timelines project, which is an Erasmus+ Adult Education KA2 Strategic Partnership led by Lancaster & Morecambe College.

Over the past 18 months the partnership has successfully developed and piloted new ways for carers as well as family members to produce Personal Digital Memories or PDMs consisting of visual and oral materials chosen by the person with memory loss made as a video and saved as a digital format.

The aim of the Personal Digital Memories is to act as a trigger to create a positive reaction or stimulate reminiscence and conversation. The project partners from the UK, Sweden, Slovenia, Romania and Turkey have worked together to produce a training package, website and several examples of PDMs to be used as free resource at the end of the project to support people with memory loss. So make a date in your diary.

It all kicks off at 1pm, it’s free and any money raised goes to a good cause. The party is expected to go on to 6pm and we hope to see you there!
