On Thursday, at 11.55 when this blog is published, I’ll be in London. I’ll probably be nervously
wandering walking around waiting for 12.30 to arrive so I can walk in the Curzon Theatre to await the arrival of Julianne Moore and the first British showing of Still Alice.
First, I’ll be meeting Christopher (who is living with dementia) and his wife Veronica who appeared in a Channel 4 programme called ‘Who Are You’ with Grayson Perry. I’ll also meet Angie ( a dementia support worker) and Gillian who she supports. I’m so looking forward to meeting their friendly faces first and having a chat over coffee to calm
our my nerves.
If all goes to plan, at 1pm Julianne Moore will arrive and do all her interviews and will then sign up to become a Dementia Friend before introducing the film. While everyone is watching the film she will then come and spend time with us, chatting….with us……..amazing.
It will all be filmed and recorded so I hope that will enable me to remember this very special day for a long time – in the future, when my memory fades, my daughters will be able to watch the footage and I’m sure I will sit with them and still feel the very special emotion generated from this very special day.
Update on Channel 4 News – article is now being showed on Friday and not Thursday as first thought…….
Don’t anyone pinch me so I wake up from this dream – I’m happy where I am, thank you.
