Memories of trips to the cinema in days gone by will be revived at an upcoming event. 

The Mattishall Dementia Support Group, also called the Link, is hosting Angela Bishop from the Sir John Hurt Film Trust, which is based at Cinema City in Norwich.

Linda Thompson, co-ordinator of the dementia support group, said the event would take place on October 17.  

She said: “This is designed to help people remember happy times from their lives around the cinema. It’s a wonderful idea and a wonderful thing for them to be able to do.

“Angela Bishop is a trained reminiscence worker and is bringing lots of cinema memorabilia with her.” 

Ms Thompson said that while the Link’s regular meetings were just for people with dementia, the reminiscence event would be open to anyone aged 65 or over. 

It will take place at Mattishall Methodist Church in Dereham Road from 10am-midday.

Registration is not necessary, but anyone wanting to confirm their attendance or find out more can email or call 07769 573499.
