Glamourous event held in honour of Weybridge resident

Home news

Norfolk House held a nostalgic musical event to celebrate the showbiz life of one of its residents.

Desrie Bowen, aged 91, was the guest of honor when the team at Norfolk House organised a special visit from Troubadour Productions. The theatrical duo provided an evening of entertainment packed full of sing-a-long songs, costume changes, humour and dance – all to celebrate Desrie’s career ‘treading the boards’.

Resident Desrie Bowen also enjoyed meeting the entertainers to share memories of performing in theaters around the country with her impressive list of celebrity co-stars, including Harry Secombe, and Des O’Connor, who played alongside her as Buttons in Cinderella.

Sabu Prothasis, home manager at Norfolk House, said: “Desrie is Norfolk House’s very own superstar. She joined the home two years ago and both the team members and residents enjoy hearing her memories of her star-studded career in the theater.

“Troubadour Products put on a fantastic show specifically designed for older people and the residents thoroughly enjoyed the performance and joined in with the well-known songs.”
