ArtHouse Jersey are delighted to announce the launch of our 2020 Cake and Cabaret tour around Jersey.
After the success of our first Cake and Cabaret event last year in St. Clement, we’re looking forward to the first stop of our 2020 tour around Jersey which kicked off with St. Helier Town Hall on Friday 31st January!
The main objectives of Cake and Cabaret is to make high quality art and entertainment accessible to older parishioners, to make use of under-utlised parish hall spaces and to foster a sense of community in each parish.
We hope to make each event feel like a special occasion, providing guests with a memorable musical spectacle, an opportunity to get dressed up and the chance to experience entertainment of a calibre that might not otherwise be available to them. The initiative aims to raise the bar of the entertainment on offer to the older generation on the Island. Aimed at over 65s living independently, it will allow parishioners the chance to have fun and socialise in a welcoming environment while enjoying a professionally produced show.
Jesey’s aging population is growing proportionally larger. Initiatives which address their welfare should be of importance to the whole community. There are a number of barriers which might prevent older people on the Island from being able to engage with the arts and to socialise with others; transport into town or parking may be a challenge, going out in the dark or late at night may feel intimidating. By holding Cake and Cabaret in the afternoon at local venues and recruiting volunteers to help those who struggle with transportation, it is hoped that many of these barriers will be removed.
With the support of the One Foundation, we are able to put on this fantastic event which makes high-quality entertainment accessible to elderly parishioners.
