March Events at Cumnor Hill House
We would love to see you at Cumnor Hill House this month, and we have four fantastic events lined up to make March extra-special. We hope you can make it in to see one or both of our great acts!

Without further ado, here’s what we have in store this March…

We’re starting things off on Thursday 7th with Ma Bessie, who will be performing a good mixture of classic blues and jazz tunes to get us all feeling good. Prepare to enjoy classics such as ‘Careless Love’ and ‘Nobody Knows When You’re Down and Out’. We’ll be serving homemade beef sliders too!

The following week on Thursday 14th, Away with the Fairies will be back! This four-piece male folk group absolutely love entertaining anyone who wants to be entertained, so it’s sure to be an exciting and engaging evening – and we’ll be serving a selection of Greek dishes.

On Thursday 21st, we’re welcoming Bob Oakley into Cumnor Hill House for the first time – Bob will be playing all sorts of country and Irish music for us to enjoy, and we’ll be serving Spanish chicken and chorizo.

To round the month off, we’ve got a male and female duo coming in on Thursday 28th to sing songs from over the years. They’re called Zing, and we can’t wait to see them perform – songs including ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’ by the Drifters and ‘Mr Wonderful’ by Peggy Lee are in their repertoire, so come along and join in the fun! You can also enjoy some Moroccan-style lamb while you’re here.

Please note that food options are subject to change, but all entertainment and refreshments are offered completely free of charge. Please RSVP to or 01865 415185 to let us know you’re coming; we hope to see you very soon.

Valentine's Day Celebrations
One thing Cumnor Hill House knows how to do well is have a good time – and to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, we threw a special love-themed event! Everyone was dancing to the sweet sounds of Titine La Voix, and there was a glass of bubbly and a beautiful rose for everyone.

Lollipop Ponies
We had the most adorable and well-behaved visitors here at Cumnor Hill House yesterday, who went by the names of Lollipop and Tinkerbell – they were here courtesy of Lollipop Pony Parties and are actually specially-trained therapy ponies! We all loved meeting these incredibly friendly animals, and they made their way around the home from room to room for a bit of fuss and a stroke.

The ponies let people know they wanted a treat by tapping their hooves on the floor, and some residents actually fed them! It was great to see the interaction and see everyone smiling from ear to ear.

February Events at Cumnor Hill House
February’s going to be a brilliant month here at Cumnor Hill House, with four fantastic events coming up. We’re starting the month off with a newcomer in our midst, as we host Swing Hour with Wayne – Wayne is known for his 1960s and ’70s swing set, so we’re looking forward to finding out what great hits he has up his sleeve. Our next event is a Valentine’s Day Special, with Titine La Voix, who will most certainly give us a romantic evening to remember.

We’re then welcoming Mike Emblow into our home, a versatile vocalist who sings big band, jazz combos and more, taking influence from all sorts of big names to create an extensive repertoire. To finish off the month with a bang, we’ve managed to line up a visit from Brian Slade! Brian has been in many bands over the years and has even been on Top of the Pops - it’s time to go back to the swinging ’60s!

All events will start with refreshments at 6:30pm followed by the main event at 7pm – if you would like to join us, please RSVP to or 01865 415185. It would be great to see you here at Cumnor Hill House.

Jacqueline Maynard
At the weekend, we welcomed back the beautiful and very talented Jacqueline Maynard of X Factor fame into our home; Jackie is a local Oxfordshire lass whose visits Cumnor Hill House from time to time to entertain residents, their family members and friends on a Thursday evening. She sings a vast repertoire of songs including You’re My World by Cilla Black! She has also been very busy working with the Britain’s Got Talent TV show, so we hope to see her again in the near future.

January Events at Cumnor Hill House
This month, we have not four but five fabulous events for you to come along to! We’re kicking off 2019 on Thursday 3rd January with an Elvis Presley tribute act, so get ready to dance the night away. The following week, we’re welcoming Rhythm 2 Keys, a unique duo who we’re really excited about seeing. On 17th January, Paul Dumas is coming back by popular demand and will be entertaining us for the evening.

On 24th January, we’re delighted to be welcoming back the wonderful Jacqueline Maynard – it’s not every day you see an X Factor contestant here in our home. Rounding off the month, we’re delighted to have Jenny Sinclair here, who is one of the UK’s top Karen Carpenter tribute acts.

We hope to see you this month here at Cumnor Hill House, and if you are coming along to any of the above events, please be sure to RSVP by emailing or calling 01865 415 185. Happy New Year!

Christmas Extravaganza
Last week, we threw a Christmas party with a difference! We had a special Christmas Casino Night for residents, their family members and friends, complete with a James Bond theme! We had the lovely and talented Donna D'Sylva here singing the classics like Skyfall and Goldfinger, Champagne and Martinis were flowing – shaken, not stirred, of course! Some residents were very lucky at the tables with prizes for the most chips won.
