About our Events
The Time Machine offers a friendly and fun activity centre designed to exercise the mind and body.
Each room is decorated to represent a different period in histories such as our 1940's dining room, 1950s cinema experience room and the 1960s kitchen.
For anyone struggling with mental health challenges such as anxiety and depression, we offer music appreciation and health and beauty sessions on makeover days.
For adults living with dementia or additional needs, we offer seated exercise, memory games, cognitive stimulation therapy, music and introduction to foreign language classes, art, reminiscence and cross-generational sessions.
Situated in a historic and much-loved Georgian building, the Time Machine can be found in the heart of Retford and provides a safe and secure environment with carefully vetted and trained staff.
Home assessments may be necessary in some cases to establish individual needs to ensure appropriate safeguards are in place. Sessions are very reasonably priced at £5-£15 depending on the tutor, content and length of the session.
We are very lucky to have an enthusiastic group of volunteers who support the staff and are always happy to extend a warm welcome to other potential volunteers.
