Festival of Ageing revisited
Our Festival of Ageing took place across Greater Manchester over two weeks in July 2018. It celebrated the joys of getting older and was aimed at people over 50.
The fortnight attracted in the region of 8000 people to over 350 events across all ten GM boroughs. Local celebrations took a variety of forms including coffee mornings, fitness sessions, digital workshops, tai chi, walking football, wellbeing drop-ins, public lectures, wall-climbing, knitting groups, local history discussions, social meet-ups, dances, art groups, swing music nights, games mornings and singing groups.
This short video, produced by Persona Care and Support, one of our project partners, gives you flavour of the activities and events on offer across Bury and Bolton.
