Past theme’s have included Cirque de la Vie – a day under the big top, PAC Masters, based around the Commonwealth Games, A Fair to Remember, comprising a variety of traditional fair games and competitions, and Lifeview's Got Talent, a show stopper with residents shining on stage,” Ms. Gall elaborated.
