Music and dancing at Oxford care home

Posted on 20 June 2011

Residents paying for care in an Oxford facility enjoyed entertainment fit for royalty when a violinist who has performed for the Queen visited their care home.

Classically-trained violinist Victoria Yellop paid a visit to Isis Care Home in Cornwallis Road, repowers the Oxford Mail.

The talented musician played a variety of music, from pop songs to 1960s tunes, and was accompanied by Oxford University Dancers.

Monica Karwal, events organiser at the facility, told the publication: "We try and organise a few big events every year here, and we thought this would be nice and different."

 "The dancing was really impressive. It was nice and summery, just in time for the start of summer."

In other news, a Scarthingwell care home held a Proms and Picnic in the Park to raise money for charity, reports the Wetherby News.

Tadcaster Grammer School concert band performed at the occasion, which raised more than £200 for Selby District Council's charities, the British Heart Foundation and the Peter Pan Nursery in Sherburn-in-Elmet.
