Comedian Joe Pasquale opens nightclub at Ipswich care home

A care home in Ipswich is helping residents recover their mojo by dancing the night away at a specially designed nightclub. Thornbank care home has created its very own nightclub and pub, designed for residents to spend time together reminiscing over a pint or playing traditional games. In the evening the ‘Snug’, as it is known, is transformed into a dance floor – where residents are encouraged to show off their best moves. The facilities were officially opened on Saturday, June 16 by Essex-born comedian Joe Pasquale. Lyn Andrews, activity coordinator at the home, said the pub and club had “brought fun and laughter back into our residents’ lives”.
