Anglicare’s Castle Hill village was recently treated to a spectacular concert by the ABBA Tribute Band ‘Bjorn Again’. Kicking off the show with ‘Waterloo’; the stage was set for an unforgettable evening for the nearly 300-strong audience, made up of residents from retirement living and residential care, along with their families and staff.
The band captivated the crowd, which spanned in age from 20 – 97 years old, with all the ABBA favourites. By the time the last song, ‘Dancing Queen’ was played, the audience were waving their hands, up on their feet, with some even dancing in the aisles!
Anglicare resident Betty said the concert was one of the best she had ever been to and commented on “how lucky we are to have performances like this in our village”. A wonderful example of the vibrant communities that exist in Anglicare’s retirement living villages and residential care homes.
