There will be various activities on offer and props from days gone by on display to stimulate memories and spur conversations.
Organiser David Jay said: “Quay Place offers the perfect setting for this event, as well as being accessible and centrally located it is also a space which is warm and welcoming which will help to provide the right atmosphere for those taking part.”
