Festive sing-along kicks off the Christmas season at Leamington care home

A FESTIVE musical extravaganza helped spread Christmas cheer at a Leamington care home.

Residents at Priors House, on Old Milverton Lane, were joined by youngsters from Leamington LAMP for a musical Christmas performance.

Leamington LAMP is an award-winning alternative provider of high quality education to young people with autism in Warwickshire, and operates funded projects in music and the arts.

The children visited the home to perform a selection of Christmas classics for residents as they strummed their guitars, and encouraged residents to sing along to some of their seasonal favorites – including ‘Silent Night’, ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ and ‘Last Christmas’.




Francine Summers, Home Manager at Priors House, said: “We’re all looking forward to celebrating Christmas here at Priors House, and were delighted to be joined by children from Leamington LAMP for a special performance of residents’ best-loved festive classics.

“Intergenerational relationships can be incredibly fulfilling, as they give younger and older generations a chance to learn from one another. These connections can be especially helpful for older people as they can provide a sense of purpose and spark discussions about their childhood.


“It was a wonderfully festive afternoon and we’d like to say a huge thank you to Leamington LAMP again for coming along to the home and spreading the Christmas cheer.”
