Sunday 20th December, 2pm for 2:30pm
The Voice cloud in association with The Seagull Theatre are delighted to present a very special online performance of a festive show created specifically for care settings and residential homes, funded by The Suffolk Community Foundation.
‘A Christmas Special’ is a professional festive musical show which will be performed at the Seagull Theatre and live-streamed in full 1080p high-definition to any care and residential homes who would like to watch, free of charge!
Following the popularity of our free-to-watch Remembrance Day live-stream performance in November which was broadcasted into over 130 care homes across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, we will be performing this Christmas show on Sunday 20th December at 2:30pm!
If you work in a care home – we’d love to hear from you!
Settle your residents in front of their TV and tune in for this heart-warming show as we take you on a musical journey paying homage to the best singers from the golden age of swing and the big band era including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Andy Williams, Dean Martin, Louis Armstrong, Perry Como, Bing Crosby and Matt Monro to name a few.
‘A Christmas Special’ will recreate the atmosphere of the family-viewing TV specials of the 1950s and ’60s and promote fun, engagement and reminiscence whilst celebrating the very best Christmas songs and holiday music of this bygone era, featuring such festive classics as ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’, ‘White Christmas’, ‘Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire’, ‘It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas’ and ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ among many others.

Arrange for a resident(s) to receive a very special Christmas greeting!
We know that the impact of the COVID pandemic on care home residents has been significant.
As we approach Christmas, most residents up and down the country face either not being able to see their loved-ones and family at all or having severe restrictions on visiting hours and physical contact.
Therefore, we are encouraging you to ask family members of any of your residents to RECORD A SHORT CHRISTMAS GREETING for their loved one to tell them how much you love them and miss them.
We will then play that greeting live to make your residents day (and Christmas!)
