Discusson around well-produced flashcards is a wonderful way of animating any group and we have produced two sets on popular topics that are bound to trigger treasured memories, create interaction and help stories flow. Memory Joggers: Entertainers introduces one card and one entertainers for each year from 1940 to 1989.
The cards are notable for their quality of production and also for the recent memories they introduce. Some cards are in black and white, and some are in colour.
The cards introduce people like Bill Hayley, a young Frank Sinatra, the Goons, the Beatles and other favourites such as Violet Carson, Morecambe Wise, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. Each card includes brief biographical notes and ideas for use.
Contains 50 laminated cards
