Thornton Hall Turns Liverpool Area into a Summer Night City Again for Eurovision Themed Party

With the Eurovision Song Contest around the corner once again, Thornton Hall and Lodge Care Home scored ‘douze points’ this week as it celebrated the 50th anniversary of ABBA’s contest win with a 1974-themed party!

Thorton Hall, in Crosby near Liverpool, knew for sure What’s The Name of the Game was with their 70’s style party, complete with swirly-patterned shirts, flared trousers and a sound system blaring out Eurovision favourites including all the hits from the Swedish quartet!

Thornton Hall is part of the Orchard Care Homes group, which operates 23 care homes across the Midlands and the north.

The home offers residential dementia care as well as short-term respite care, all under the Orchard ethos of care and respect for the individual on a one-to-one basis, making each resident feel as welcomed and cared for as possible.

There were a fair few Dancing Queens at the party which turned music-mad Liverpool into a Summer Night City once again, with the party having 70’s style party food and a chance to try out the karaoke machine.

Emily Dickson, activities coordinator at Thornton Hall, said: “We never need an excuse to throw a party and the 50th anniversary of ABBA’s Eurovision win gave us the perfect reason. It was wonderful to see the smiles on our residents’ faces – and I want to thank everyone who worked hard for their enjoyment; I must also say Thank You For The Music!”

Resident Anne said: “I had an amazing time singing and dancing with all my friends and family from the home.”

Michelle Duvall, Home Manager added: “So many of our residents are ABBA fans, so it was a great reason to have a party themed around the band to trigger some happy thoughts from their pasts. Each of them is a winner, and for them The Winner Takes It All!”
