The Seagull Theatre in Pakefield is hosting an accessible concert as part of its First Light Sessions programme.
This Sunday, October 17, the theatre will be offering a concert from the local swing group 'Out of Nowhere'.
With this concert starting at 3pm theatre officials said it "will be an accessible performance designed specifically for audience members who are living with dementia and their families."
