Hoople is excited to sponsor the Courtyard's Spectacular Tea Dances hosted throughout the year.

The Courtyard’s Spectacular Tea Dances offer a nostalgic dementia friendly event to brighten up attendees’ days. The Tea Dances offer dancing, music, tea and cakes with the chance to meet new people and socalise in a safe and supported environment.  

“It is fantastic Hoople is involved in sponsoring such a worthwhile project.” Says Nick Mather, Chief Operating Officer of Hoople ltd, “Bringing local individuals together to tackle loneliness through initiatives such as the Spectacular Tea Dance is so valuable for our community.”

As the UK’s first Dementia Friendly arts venue, The Courtyard is committed to providing regular workshops, performances and screenings for those living with dementia. The arts venue also offer free, monthly Dementia Friends Information Sessions where members of the public can find out more about dementia and the little ways they can help. All Courtyard staff have also been trained as Dementia Friends.

The Courtyard Corporate Fundraising Manager OIlle Grove says We very much value the support from local businesses and Hoople’s ongoing commitment to the arts in Herefordshire demonstrates their generosity to The Courtyard. Having this support means we can continue providing the Spectacular Tea Dance programme of events for the next year and allow more people access to the arts in this way.”
