Celebrating Age


Celebrating Age is a week-long festival celebrating the achievements and aspirations of older people in Telford and Wrekin. The first festival took place in October 2017, and we plan to make it an annual event.

From painting to walking football, from computer groups to communal singing – we are involving groups of all types in a full week programme of events, workshops and taster sessions highlighting the rich diversity of activities available to older people across the borough:  a celebration of everything older people make, create and participate in.

Several groups came forward to participate in the programme this year. Some themed their regular meeting around celebrating the achievements and interests of older people, others held a taster workshop or special event specifically focussed on older people’s participation.

We also held a full day launch event with lots of workshops and have a go activities taking place throughout the day.

The festival this year will take place week commencing the 8th October 2018, with the Launch Day Event happening a week earlier on Monday 1st October 2018.
