Be a part of Celebrating Age 2018
We will be running the second Celebrating Age Festival in October 2018 and we want to give you an opportunity to be part of this year’s festival.
The week-long festival highlights the variety of activities available to older people across the borough, in a bid to celebrate the achievements and aspirations of senior citizens in Telford and Wrekin. By engaging the older population in tailored activities, the aim is to also help combat loneliness and enhance wellbeing.
It also offers you a great opportunity to promote what you do and to recruit new members.
The festival week from Monday 8th October – Friday 12th October, will feature a full programme of sessions listed in a printed booklet and online.
We’re offering you the opportunity to have your session listed in the festival programme, inviting people to come along and have a ‘taster session’ during the week 8th – 12th October.
Or if you haven’t got a session running that week, you may wish to put on a special activity.
The festival will also include a launch day taking place on Monday 1st October at The Place, Oakengates, from around 10am – 2pm. For this we are looking for groups to demonstrate their activities and give people an opportunity to ‘have a go’. This would also be a good way to promote your festival session to attendees. (over 230 people attended the launch day in 2017)

This Festival is being coordinated through a partnership between the Senior Citizens Forum, Age UK Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, Wrekin Housing Trust and Telford and Wrekin Council.
