LUSLS


This is the Lancaster University Senior Learners' Society.
It is the part of the programme where social events, theatre visits, picnics and other shenanigans happen.
We are a sociable bunch and try to get along to interesting cultural events whenever we can.
Up to now we have been on picnics, visited art galleries, classical concerts, operas etc...

Still Me Multi- Arts Group, The Dukes




The Dukes are thrilled to present a unique 2 day exploration of how the arts are touching the lives of people living with dementia in wonderful and remarkable ways.



‘A Life More Ordinary’ at The Dukes in Lancaster invites people living with dementia, family, friends, health and care professionals, artists, researchers and clinical commissioning teams to share and discover some of the ground-breaking ways that the arts help us to understand dementia better and play an invaluable part in how we journey through life together.



This event will include keynote speakers, performances and workshops by some of the most pioneering artists, practitioners, researchers and extraordinary people working with people with dementia, in a variety of settings and in unique ways.



Please join us to share your insights.


A Life More Ordinary is a 3 year project led by The Dukes, which aims to improve the lives of people with dementia and memory loss and their friends and families by providing fun creative activities and film screenings in an adapted environment. The programme currently has 13 partner venues across the UK.


There are a limited number of Early Bird tickets available until January 2018.
General release tickets will be announced soon; keep posted for updates, key note speakers and activities.
