CBSO Cuppa Concerts: At Home

At the best of times, there is limited opportunity for care settings and older people’s groups to access high quality, carefully programmed concerts performed by world class musicians, due to their location, financial situation, or the vulnerability of their residents. This is why we’re so excited to launch Cuppa Concerts: At Home – an engaging and affordable musical package, for older people to enjoy from the comfort of their living rooms. To find our more, and order our latest pack, please visit cbso.co.uk/cuppa-concerts/at-home.

In our Care Settings DVD packages (£40 inc. P&P), we provide care settings with a specially programmed concert on DVD for residents to enjoy in communal spaces, plus 15 programme booklets, an activities and resource pack for staff to help enrich the experience, and some further listening and viewing recommendations. We will also provide digital access to all these resources - as well as an audio described programme for those with visual impairments - so that residents can watch the concert in their room, on a tablet or laptop, and on demand. We also now offer 2-month online-only access for £24. All online resources will be available for 2 months after release with no limit on how many times you can watch the concert, and the DVD packages are yours to keep and reuse whenever you like.

We are delighted to offer this fantastic programme to people being cared for at home, with our Household package. For just £12.50 (inc. P&P), we will provide a DVD, a programme booklet, and some further listening activities, as well as online access to these resources, including the audio-described programme. For £6.00, you can also purchase this pack as online-access only, available for 2 months.

We are excited to offer the option to purchase Cuppa Concerts: At Home DVD packages as gifts for care settings that are close to your heart, or a loved one at home. Gifts are available as DVD packages only, at a rate of £40 for Care Setting packages, and £12.50 for Household packages. We can include a gift message, and can ship the gift directly to the recipient if you wish.
