Pop-Up Shop

Abbeyfield & Wesley is setting up a pop-up shop for local residents to take a trip down memory lane this October 11-16 in Ballymena and October 18-23 in Carrickfergus.

Using videos and pictures from decades past, Tea and Memories will run twice daily throughout the week and showcase the sights and sounds of a bygone era.

Tea and Memories is an Abbeyfield initiative that has already been piloted at its 20 accommodation settings here, with much success, and now the accommodation provider wants to allow other members of the community to delve into the archives while enjoying a cuppa and good company.

With two sessions daily - 10.30am and 2.00pm - the event is aimed at older members of the community who have been isolated during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Aimed at both men and women, Tea and Memories guarantees a warm welcome and the time to spark conversations, swap stories and connect with friends old and new.


11th - 16th October | 10.30am & 2.00pm | Tower Centre, Ballymena

18th - 23rd October | 10.30am & 2.00pm | Carrickfergus
