Throughout November, we have been preparing a brand new Christmas Show, which will be distributed to 1,500 care homes across the UK!
The Christmas DVD – ‘Bringing You a Not Forgotten Christmas’ features a collection of classic festive songs, carols and music, all chosen especially for our care homes.
We hope that it will entertain, boost morale, and lift lockdown spirits during what can be an exceptionally lonely time of year for those separated from their families.
Special thanks to the Lest We Forget Association, whose kind donation enabled us to produce this DVD!
This year, we have been forced to restrict the number of care home performances we could offer, because of the pandemic.
Our Christmas Show enables residents to watch a festive concert which can be enjoyed numerous times, from the safety and comfort of their homes.
The 90-minute show features many of the fantastic performers who join us for our traditional concert tours, as well as a few special guests, such as The Jive Aces, Margaret Keyes, and The Band of The Welsh Guards.
Most of the DVD’s filming took place during lockdown 2 in the Hurst Theatre at Hurtspierpoint, while some were recorded remotely.
The Band of The Welsh Guards played a selection of music including carols for viewers to sing along to and recorded their pieces in the historic Figure Court at The Royal Hospital Chelsea.
The Christmas Show DVD will be sent out as a gift to care homes across the county at the beginning of December and will also be sent to The Not Forgotten beneficiaries aged between 70 and 90.
