Our “Happy Days” memory café celebrated the 5th birthday of the BDAA on 6th July 2018. What’s more exciting, is that the BBC was there to film the event for an edition of “Inside Out West” which broadcasts next month on September 10th at 7:30pm.
Thanks to everyone that showed up to our 5th birthday celebrations at The Galleries – Bristol, it was a great day and we’re very proud how far we’ve come over the last few years.
