Hospice celebrates new site opening with first ever music festival

Categories: Care, Featured, and People & Places.

Thames Hospice will mark the opening of their new premises with the launch of a music festival this summer.

Taking place on June 6 in the grounds of their new hospice by Bray Lake in Maidenhead, LakeFest will offer live music, entertainment and food for the whole family.

Local bands and DJs will perform music from across the decades, and special headline performances will feature tribute acts The Ed Sheeran Experience and Amy G, who performs songs by Ariana Grande.

The hospice will also present ‘Thames Got Talent’, inviting children and young adults to sing, dance or perform on stage in front of a judging panel from the Pauline Quirke Academy. On the same day, the charity’s annual Sunflower Walk will also take place for the first time around the hospice’s new home, with a choice of 2.5k, 4k or 10k routes open to all ages and abilities.

Thames Hospice was granted planning permission in 2017 to build bigger premises. Set over eight acres of land next to Bray Lake, the new site will have 28 private inpatient rooms, all with en-suites and space for families to stay overnight.

The new hospice will also enable the charity to double its day services provision, offering daily therapeutic and social activities, a gym and physiotherapy suite, five complementary therapy treatment rooms, four counselling rooms, and our new education and training centre.

Commenting on the summer events, Alison Evans, Head of Events and Community Fundraising said: “We can’t wait to move into our new hospice this summer. Both events will offer walkers and festival revellers the exciting opportunity to have a closer glimpse of the new hospice ahead of its opening.

“Every penny raised will allow us to care for even more local families for generations to come.”
