What Is Carechella?

If you live in the Hampshire town of Havant, get ready to groove, sing and celebrate as Portsdown View Care Home presents Carechella - a one-of-a-kind, free, family-friendly and age-inclusive festival.

Carechella will bring different generations together through an inclusive and fun day, packed with activities such as music, dance, delicious food and everything else you’d associate with a festival!

When Is Carechella Taking Place?

Inspired by the popular American event Coachella, Carechella is taking place on Saturday 19th August 2023 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the newly-opened Portsdown View.

What's On Offer At Carechella

Online searches for families looking for free entertainment over the summer holidays have greatly risen across the last three months. That’s why we’re offering an action-packed (and free) day of entertainment for the Havant locals:

  • 1600% increase in online searches for ‘free summer holiday activities’
  • 600% increase in online searches for ‘free summer holiday activities near me’
  • 400% increase in online searches for ‘cheap things to do in the summer holidays’

At this festival, attendees of all ages can take part in craft workshops, where they can create flower garlands, get glitter tattoos and make positive mantra stones. These hands-on experiences will create lasting memories and an invaluable chance for older adults, children and care home residents to interact and bond.

Carechella will even feature two talented singers, who will entertain the crowd with a variety of classic hits and modern favourites alike. Singing and dancing along is 100% encouraged!

When it comes to food and drink, Carechella will offer a range of Coachella-inspired festival favourites. Attendees can enjoy all sorts of delicious snacks from various food stalls, including burgers, hot dogs, and Tex-Mex cuisine.

Above all, Carechella will be the perfect occasion for everyone to immerse themselves in a lively atmosphere and experience a warm welcome from the Portsdown View team.

Portsdown View Care Home is committed to the safety and comfort of all attendees. Trained first aiders will be present throughout the event, and quiet corners will be available for those seeking a more relaxed environment.

Why Carechella Is So Important

Sarah Peach - care home manager at Portsdown View - has said that "Carechella was born out of our desire to create intergenerational connections and showcase the vibrant spirit of older adults, all whilst offering a free, fun day out for the local Havant community.”

Sarah has also said that Portsdown View is “beyond excited to welcome locals to our home for this exciting new and free event.”

We’ve teamed up with Portsdown View to create this event. The ultimate goal is to create lasting connections within the Havant community, while also debunking age-related stereotypes and proving that older adults can still have plenty of fun.
