If you’re arriving by train, there are buses (no. 7) that go to the Marina from outside the station entrance. There are also taxis there too.

The Marina has just installed a set of bike-share bikes, should you wish to travel that way too! https://www.btnbikeshare.com/

If you’re driving, there is free parking available in the multi storey carpark by the entrance to the Marina. There is a pedestrian bridge on Level 6 of the car park that brings you out almost directly by the ramp down to the Barge.

We look forward to seeing you! #kidskreativekristmas

Dancing with Dementia update

IMG_4021Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage would like to thank the Mrs A Lacy-Tate Trust for joint funding us to deliver a series of activities at Brooke Mead, a new purpose built Dementia focussed sheltered housing scheme run by BHCC in Brighton and Hove.

The project is called Dancing with Dementia – Creating spaces for dance and movement.

This sum will make a huge difference in enabling us to develop and facilitate a programme of events for older people who will benefit immensely from this engagement.

Dancing with Dementia 2018

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is pleased to hear that we’ve been given a small grant to run a new Dancing with Dementia project in Brighton in 2018, at a new purpose built residence Brooke Mead Extra Care Housing scheme in partnership with Brighton and Hove Council.
 
The grant is from the Trust for Developing Communities – Healthy Community Fund. The sessions will start early next year and focus on people with early onset dementia, their families and scheme visitors.
 
“Dancing with Dementia is another excellent example of why Strike a Light is a truly committed community organisation. It’s not all about big grants, these local, hands-on local endeavours keep us in touch with our wonderfully diverse and vibrant neighbourhoods. Dancing is one of the best and most fun ways to communicate. I’m delighted to hear that we have been successful in our bid for support from the Healthy Neighbourhood Fund.”
Dr Sam Carroll – Strike a Light Director
“It’s fantastic for Strike A Light to be continuing our work with people living with dementia, thanks to the Healthy Neighbourhood Fund – we are pleased to be able to build on our successes in this project with new participants at Brook Mead, an exciting new development for the city.”
