Hepworth House Care Home Ready to Celebrate Local Musicians with ‘Hepfest’ Music Festival

Wakefield care home, Hepworth House, are inviting people in the area to ‘Hepfest’, a music festival taking place at the care home featuring local talented performers.

From 14:00 until 16:30 on Saturday 8th July, guests will be welcomed into Hepworth House’s gardens to enjoy music from entertainers like Steve Walters, Many Voices Community Choir and the care home’s own singing group, the Hepworth Harmonies, made up of residents from the home.

70-year-old resident and Hepworth Harmonies member, Catherine Harley, said, ‘I love going to our choir sessions, they are so much fun.

‘We even do music quizzes during the session to test our memories – I love these, and they often bring back fond memories. Music means so much to me, it always lifts my mood. I’m really looking forward to Hepfest!’

Musician and regular visitor of Hepworth House, Steve Walters, commented on his visits to the home, ‘Music soundtracks all our lives, and those musical memories act as cornerstones for us when we recall special moments.

‘Being able to take these lovely folk back to another time is like a magic trick. It never fails to astonish me that music can do this, and it’s a testament to the amazing level of care given at Hepworth House that music isn’t seen as a luxury, but a necessity.’

Helen Batty, the Home Manager at Hepworth House, added, ‘We are big believers in the power of music at Hepworth House. Music can evoke so many emotions and remind our residents of precious memories from their past.

‘We love to hear our staff and residents singing along to their favourite tunes, so we’re very excited to share our love of music at Hepfest. All are welcome to join us for a fantastic day supporting local musicians!’
