The Broomhouse Centre in Edinburgh will host a week of activities for To Absent Friends. There will be a “Tree of Remembrance” in the café area with information about what the tree is about and asking all who use the café if they would like to complete a label giving tributes to lost love ones. Any member of the public is welcome.
The Centre's Beacon Club will also hold 3 private events on Thursday 1 and Monday 5 at St David’s Church and Wednesday 7 November at St Margaret’s Court, Juniper Green. Writer and performer Tamarin Fountain will be telling two interactive short stories from the past (40s to 60s) integrating well-known songs (and some poems) that the group can join in and sing along with. The members will also be asked if any the songs bring back memories of anyone in particular and encourage them to talk about those people and think of them as we sing. Tamarin will bring and use reminiscence props and at the end of each session ask the group who they would like to/hope to meet again, singing the song We'll Meet Again to finish.
