Champagne Entertainment at Wytham House

Wytham House residents in Farmoor, Oxfordshire were delighted to welcome Champagne Enterprise, Val and Rob, to their home this week.

Organsied by our Activity Coordinators, Liza and Sandy, the duo sang songs of old and performed a selection of easy listening music from early 50’s and 60’s tunes and pre-war sing-a-longs, to name just a few.

There were songs such as Cliff Richard’s ‘Summer Holiday’ and ‘The Young Ones’, Vera Lynn and Al Jolson, and they also sang some popular sing–a-long favourites such as ‘The Lambeth Walk’, ‘A Bicycle Made for Two’, ‘Tie a Yellow Ribbon round the Old Oak Tree’, and ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire’ from the film High Society. Favourite by far however, and by unanimous decision was ‘You are my Sunshine’ by Morecombe and Wise.

Our residents loved it and merrily sang along, foot tapping and clapping along to the rhythms.

Anne, one of our residents thanked Val and Rob and said:

“How wonderful it was to have a sing song and that she really enjoyed it.”

Pauline another resident commented:

“She liked the fact that Val had dressed up in her sparkly dress.”

We all had a great time and it a was a fun, interactive and sociable event that all our residents really enjoyed. The atmosphere was buzzing and from our residents’ reactions, we may be booking them again.

Wytham House is a Caring Homes Group care home, part of the Oaken Holt Estate off Eynsham Road, providing specialist dementia care for up to 40 people.
