A ‘Day to Remember’ is a free open air concert at Chelmsford City Racecourse on Wednesday 19 September from 10.30am until 1.30pm.

Following the success of last year’s ‘A Day to Remember’ concert attended by over 800 people, Runwood Homes Senior Living are looking forward to hosting their second live music event which promises to be bigger and better than the first.

Organised exclusively with the older generation and their carers and family members in mind, this fantastic, outdoor live entertainment event aims to bring together a huge crowd for a grand, all singing, all dancing community event. We wish to raise awareness of dementia and enrich the lives of others in creating new memories to last a lifetime.

Importantly, ‘A Day to Remember’ is entirely appropriate for those living with the effects of dementia who will be able to enjoy watching live performances and listening to popular songs from the past, being taken back to ‘the good old days’, sharing happy memories with new friends.

This event is free of charge. If you know someone who’d love to join in ‘A Day to Remember’, come along! To attend, please register by emailing names of attendees and a contact telephone number to adaytoremember@runwoodhomes.co.uk.
