Night at the proms – Stansted care home concert hits the right note

Highlighted home news

Residents at a care home in Stansted enjoyed their very own night at the proms. 

The team at Care UK’s Mountfitchet House, on Coltsfield, decided to organise a classical music concert for residents to celebrate the end of summer.  


Inspired by the BBC Proms, which is enjoyed by residents living in the home, Mountfitchet House welcomed Woodwind of Stortford for an afternoon filled with music and dancing. 

88-year-old resident, Peter, said: “It was lovely to listen to the music and see the band play live in our garden. Joining in with our musical instruments was great fun; a really pleasant afternoon.”

Jane Maxwell, Home Manager at Mountfitchet House, added: “After such a challenging year, we wanted to organise an event to remember, filled with fun, music and smiles."

“Many residents enjoy listening to classical music, as it reminds them of happy memories and the associated emotions. After watching the proms on the television, we were inspired to bring the beauty of classical music to Mountfitchet House."


It was a wonderful afternoon, and we enjoyed getting our own instruments out to join in with the band too. I’d like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to Woodwind of Stortford for playing for us – it really was a day to remember.
