On Saturday August 7th 2016, Ladyville Lodge Care Home in Ockendon ‘did’ Woodstock by holding their own Summer Music Festival.
Jane Maxwell, Home Manager, said: “We understand that a lot of our residents were a part of the ‘swinging’ sixties and have musical tastes that connect with that era.
“We booked a variety of musical acts and dressed the grounds of Ladyville Lodge with themed seating and accessories. Spaces were made available for the hardier concert goers to pitch a tent for the night in true Woodstock style.
“Families came to the event and there was something for everyone to do - whatever their age. The sun shone for us all day and well into the evening. The event is now the talk of the home, with everyone talking nonstop about it.”
Ladyville Lodge is seriously considering making its Summer Music Festival an annual event.
