Drop-In Café

This event is free, no ticket is required. Location: Festival Theatre Café

The drop-in café is an informal social gathering for people with lived experience of dementia which takes place on the last Wednesday of every month.  Join us for tea, cake and a chat. We are also a Playlists for Life Help Point so please pop in and we can spend time with you creating "The Soundtrack to your Life".

Wednesday 29 January: Come along to find out more about Playlists For Life and to start your own musical memories journey.

Wednesday 26 February: Lots of photographs of Edinburgh – let’s see who knows their stuff and is really from The Burgh!

Wednesday 25 March: Are you bilingual? Know another language? Come and share some fun phrases with us….no swear words though!

From time to time, we also welcome visitors from other organisations who chat about their activities and ways they support people living with dementia, their families and supporters to live well.

Life Changes Trust

What would I be doing otherwise? Just sitting at home staring at the walls. This has given me a new lease of life!


Capital Theatres aim to be accessible to all. We are committed to making your visit to our theatres as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. All of our Front of House staff undergo disability awareness training and Dementia Friend Training and will be pleased to assist you should you require any information or help.
