Steve, Bob and Michael all have their own experience of Myton – being a patient, bringing a loved one, and bereavement – but all met at Warwick Myton Day Unit.
I knew Bob from the local music scene but seeing him at Myton kind of reconnected us; I knew his wife had been a patient at Myton. Bob and I are like each other’s shadows at the moment, playing together locally all the time. We like to make a show of it!
We got to know Michael through him bringing his wife to Warwick Myton Day Unit. I didn’t realise he was a musician, but we started talking about music and he told us how he used to play bass in a band. Meeting us encouraged him to get his guitar out again!
Myton is such a special place and it’s great to connect through our individual experiences here.
Take a look at our gallery below:
Their shared love of music and performing have brought the trio together and they now regularly perform to patients, staff and volunteers at the hospice!
Singing along is encouraged, and the sound of guitars drifting into the reception area after lunch is commonplace!
Steve also regularly raises money for Myton, as well as a few other local charities, through his performances, and has become a regular performer at our Warwick Summer Fete.

We thoroughly enjoy Steve, Bob and Michael’s performances and are thrilled they have struck up such a friendship!
