Service summary

The club has space for 13 members each day and follows our trademark formula of small group activities, a relaxed informal atmosphere and high staff ratios allowing everyone to follow their own preferences. 

The first thing you'll notice as you enter the Old Silk Works is the light and sheer size of the club. The space is thoughtfully laid out with a large main activity area, an open plan kitchen and members' art on the walls. An indoor garden area (complete with water feature) allows members to experience more natural surroundings. There is also a quiet lounge area with retro furniture and fittings.

No two days are the same at Old Silk Works, with activities tailored very much to members' own interests. General activities include art therapy, cookery, board games, reminiscence, dance, poetry readings, photography and much more, alongside plenty of chat and laughter. The club is keen to forge close links with the local community with visiting speakers and entertainers welcomed.

Opening times

Old Silk Works is open from 9.45am to 3.45pm four days a week (Tuesday to Friday).
