All-ages disco to break down ageist perceptions

Posted onPosted on 5th Mar

Our Dementia Choir is hosting an all-ages disco as part of Ageism Action Week.

The event has  a vibrant See and Be Seen theme, featuring bright neon clothing and merchandise, with the aim to create an inclusive way to combat ageism and promote the universality of music.

Organisers said they hope the disco would be a powerful tool in breaking down age-related barriers, by showcasing that people can enjoy music, dance, and socialise across generations – helping to challenge ageist attitudes and perceptions.

They added: “Certain songs or genres of music can evoke memories from various periods of life. To encourage intergenerational conversations, we will ask participants to tell us one of their favourite songs and a memory associated with it. Some of these songs will be played at the event, so the playlist for the disco will be determined by the audience.

Tickets for the event on Sunday, 17th March, at Metronome in Nottingham, from 3pm to 6pm, cost £2.50, under-16s go free, and are available at
