Summer Sing Along Inspired by Cliff Richard Hit Song

Published by Yarm School on Monday 3rd of July 2023

Yarm School brought some musical magic to people living with dementia in the local area as we hosted a summer sing along themed around the 1963 hit, Summer Holiday.

Part of the “Yarm Companions” project, which aims to take music into the local community, the school played host to individuals living with dementia and their carers for a musical extravaganza.

Taking inspiration from the Cliff Richard classic “Summer Holiday”, which was written at The Globe in Stockton, pupils and staff, with some help from the audience, performed hits from the 60s, including “Leaving on Jet Plane” and “Puppet on a String”.

The school, which was recently awarded dementia friendly status at Stockton Borough Council’s Dementia Friendly Business Awards, has hosted two previous musical events for members of the Dementia community.
