Thamesfield, Retirement Villages

This December Thamesfield Village is thrilled to be participating in the Henley Living Advent Calendar event. One of the first events of its kind in the UK, and certainly the first locally, it will run every evening from December 1st to 24th.

Venues across the town are offering a free of charge surprise performance each day of advent, in this fantastic community event.

Just like a children’s Advent Calendar, a different window or door is opened at 6:15pm promptly each evening and a 30 minute performance is given to the audience assembled. This may include songs, carols, music, poetry, book excerpts, notes from local history or folklore, sketches, dance etc, all with a Christmas or winter theme.

You can find out more about the venues for the Living Advent Calendar here.

During each performance a collection will be made, and raffle tickets will be sold, to raise monies for selected local Charities.

Thamesfield will be fundraising for OxSAR, who help vulnerable missing people in Oxfordshire.

Everyone at the village, both residents and staff are looking forward to this unique event and welcoming new faces of all ages – and we can’t wait to discover what’s behind door number 18!
