Valentine's Day
Love was in the air in February as we celebrated Valentine’s Day – the day started with each resident being given a rose, and this was followed by Valentine’s Afternoon Tea, complete with a little extra sprinkle of love!

Burns Night Supper
To celebrate the life and poetry of Robert Burns, we put on a themed evening here at Ryefield Court back in January. The kitchen went above and beyond, cooking up an absolute Scottish storm, including haggis bon bons, smashed neeps and tatties and even a delicious whisky jus. To complete the night, we even had a bagpipes performance! What a treat.

February Events at Ryefield Court
This February at Ryefield Court, we’re delighted to say that we have two fantastic events lined up for you all – will you be joining us for both entertaining evenings?

The first of these events is a singing performance, as we will be welcoming Jen Merchant into Ryefield Court. It’s sure to be a fun night as Jen takes us on a journey through the ages with jazz and swing, rock ‘n’ roll, pop and more. Singing and dancing is very much encouraged! And great food choices will accompany the evening’s entertainment.

Our second event of the month is with the one and only Ed Saloman – Ed performed for us back at Christmas and we’re pleased to welcome him and his acoustic guitar back to Ryefield Court. Playing a mixture of classic soul, jazzy numbers and more, it’ll be a great evening, with some fantastic dinner choices available too.

To join us and to see Jen and Ed in action, please RSVP to reception@ryefieldcourt.com or call the team on 01895 707106.

January Events at Ryefield Court
We’re starting 2019 with a bang here at Ryefield Court, with two fabulous events this month in our home! We hope you can join us for one or both of these great evenings – but what are they?

Well, firstly we are putting on a Motown Show on Thursday 10th January, complete with a selection of delicious curry dishes. It’s sure to be a fun-filled night with Anna Nightingale, who will take us all back in time with a selection of soulful songs, then transition into the disco classics from the 1970s and ’80s – it’ll be a perfect night for those who enjoy a boogie.

We’re following this up with a Burns Night Special on Thursday 24th January, where we’ll be celebrating the life and poetry of Robert Burns. Come along and join the celebrations, where there will be dancing and singing, Scottish music and delicious traditional Scottish food.

To come along to our events this month, please RSVP to reception@ryefieldcourt.com or call us on 01895 707 106 – we hope to see you soon.

Hollywood Glamour Night
The time between Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve is usually quite quiet, but not here at Ryefield Court! We decided to put on a Hollywood Glamour Night last night to give our residents the opportunity to get dressed up in their fanciest attire and celebrate the end of the year in style.

To end 2018 with a bang and start 2019 as we mean to go on, we pulled out all the stops at our Hollywood Glamour Night. On arrival, all guests were offered Champagne, and delicious canapés were being served, and then the entertainment began… we were joined for the evening by a brilliant DJ who played a wide variety of hits we all know and love, and everyone in the room danced the night away.

Ryefield Court Christmas Fair
Yesterday, we held a Christmas Fair here at Ryefield Court. It was our last event before the big day, so we hope you enjoyed it if you came along! With members of the community, staff, residents, friends and family members all getting together for this festive occasion, it really was a great day.

With a wide variety of market stalls, many people took the opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts and crafts, and we also held a raffle and a Christmas jumper competition. Even Father Christmas made an appearance! The choir’s singing set the mood, and mulled wine and mince pies got everyone feeling festive – it was a fun-filled afternoon for all.
Peter Pan Pantomime!
Yesterday, we went on a trip to the Becks Theatre to see the Peter Pan pantomime, starring Ryan Thomas from Coronation Street! 

Here at Ryefield Court, we love all things festive, so we thought this was a great way to start our Christmas celebrations, as our residents were taken on a swashbuckling pantomime adventure! The show had magnificent scenery, beautiful costumes, an abundance of comedy and stunning flying sequences, so we think it was the perfect treat for the festive season and outstanding entertainment for our residents here at Ryefield Court.
December Events at Ryefield Court
Well, what a year we’ve had here at Ryefield Court! To round off 2018, we’re celebrating Christmas in style, with four fabulous events taking place on Thursday evenings throughout the month of December. We’re kicking things off with a visit from Edward Saloman, who is an incredibly talented singer and acoustic guitarist, and he’ll be followed a week later by the Ukaye Ukes, who are coming back to see us again, but this time for a Christmas Special! We’re then welcoming Nelson back for a Christmas Special, performing Motown with a festive spin. Then last but most certainly not least, between Christmas and New Year, we’re holding a Hollywood Glam Party – it’s sure to be a brilliant end to the year!

As always, our events are completely free of charge and include refreshments too. We hope to see you here at Ryefield Court this December. If you would like to come along, please RSVP to events@ryefieldcourt.com or call us on 01895 707 106.
