A specially commissioned dementia friendly performance by singer Michelle Burke with pianist James Ross and directed by Gerda Stevenson as part of Capital Theatres care settings tour.
Inspired by a family story, Michelle’s Grandad Albert and his family were fierce excited about the Hillman Hunter that was parked outside the house for months awaiting their visitors from America. Albert could not drive but that didn’t stop him and his family having trips in the car. They would all pile in and imagine they were off on spins and adventures. The excitement peaked for them all on the 20th July 1969, the very day Neil Armstrong was pictured walking on the moon, Uncle Pat arrived home and the Hillman Hunter took its maiden voyage.
Why not bring your own family along on a heart-warming, colourful and humorous journey in the Hillman Hunter?
