Inspirational artefacts and moving music

Our residents have access to a wide variety of activities during the week at St Lukes. Recently we had a fascinating session about Japanese cultural objects brought by the University of Oxford GLAM team, to tie in with the "Kabuki Legends" exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum.

The residents were intrigued by a demonstration of Northumbrian pipes, which are not blown by mouth, but use a small bellow, and produce a quieter sound than bag pipes. Residents, and their family members, who have connections with Northumberland especially enjoyed familiar tunes.

As well as special presentations and performances, the weekly jazz trio bring uplifting and well-loved tunes to St Luke's. Tim Dawes plays piano, and brings together guest musicians - vocalist, saxophone and even a vibes player - to entertain us. This shot also features wonderful abstract art works, based on music and musical instruments, by Radley College students.
