Residents and staff at Highbury New Park celebrated the royal wedding in dramatic fashion...by staging their own play.
They put on a play of a mock wedding to mark the occasion. Staff and residents also made decorations and invitations and had a real wedding cake.
The play “Of the Hill Kingdom of Highbury New Park” was built around a story they had created.
“Once upon a time in a 3 star care home castle far away in a hill kingdom of Highbury New Park lived a charming prince named HRH Prince James of Wales XXII (James Hollingworth, resident of Orchid Unit), who met a plain but kind and caring Activities Co-ordinator named Lady Veronica Middle and a Halftone (Veronica Buchanan, Activities Co-ordinator) as they enjoyed playing dominoes, walks to the local shops, regular trips to the cinema, and many other activities together. Their love blossomed and set a grand wedding day with invited distinguished guests from all over the world.”
Residents and staff played the various characters from around the globe and the production was enjoyed by everyone.
