This event is a celebration of our ability to 'recite learned things'. An opportunity to raise funds for Dementia UK whilst sampling the delights of the new Pierreponts Cafe.
"Learning poetry by heart helps children communicate better and helps adults stave off dementia. Fact." Gyles Brandreth’s, Poetry By Heart.
An opportunity to show off your memory, whether by reciting known poetry, complicated formulae memorised from way back, a passage from a book or film or something new you've challenged yourself to learn by heart. Or just enjoy listening to others. Come along - entertain and be entertained over Pierreponts excellent refreshments whilst fundraising for Dementia UK.
This free event is exclusively available to Harwell Campus staff and partners until 1st July, at which point it will be available to Harwell village residents and the wider area.
Pierreponts has card payment facilities for refreshments but we would encourage you to bring cash on the day for donations to Dementia UK, or simply make a donation here https://www.dementiauk.org/get-involved/donate/.
