Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.



Prospect bank at Findlay House is a Dementia unit in the heart of Leith.

The Ward Activities programme is a direct response to the expressed needs and interests of patients and staff.

• Each activity lasts an hour
• We work across different wards in each hospital
• Activities happen at bedsides, in communal areas of the wards and in pubic spaces
• It is a constantly changing programme

The programme works across both performing and visual arts. The programme ranges from music, singing, songwriting, magic, comedy, craft and story telling.

The Supper Club...

Staff identified that 6pm (between dinner and suppertime) is a time when residents need some activity. Enter stage left: The Supper Club! We are inviting a variety of musicians from Edinburgh’s vibrant live music scene to entertain with a series of sumptuous evening events in the style of a Supper Club. We will be working together to create a night out for residents in the comfort of their own home. This is a chance for staff, families and patients to dress up and share an experience. Each event will take place in the dining room and will be hosted by Miss Annabel Sings and Prospect Bank Staff.

Singin' and Reminiscin' with Miss Annabel Sings...

With a passion for reminiscence and the help of a huge back catalogue of your favourite songs from every genre, Edinburgh’s premier Cabaret singer and host will be using songs and personal stories to help you remember good times and create a bit more fun. Annabel invites you to join her for an hour to sing, laugh, dance or simply sit back and listen.

Other art activities: The Reading Friends Scheme / Art Workshops and much more.

Please see for all activities on offer.
