Tea and Memories

Bringing the past to life through conversations

Bringing the past to life through conversation

Tea and Memories sessions are an opportunity for older people to come together to watch archive footage and reminisce over bygone eras.

Come and enjoy a cuppa and watch archive footage from the 1940s to the 1980s… holidays, transport, work, the home, sport, hobbies, politics and much more. It’s a great opportunity to swap stories, reminisce, spark conversations and connect with other like-minded people.

We have Tea and Memories sessions in Bristol and Formby, see below for dates and locations.

About Tea and Memories sessions

Tea and Memories sessions are run by Abbeyfield staff and volunteers and are designed to bring together members of the community with Abbeyfield residents and are delivered as reminiscence sessions where you can watch films from the collection - either in one go, or pause the film to discuss - all with tea, cake and refreshments provided to make the sessions even sweeter.
