Celebrating Age Festival 2016

Age Friendly Island’s second annual Celebrating Age Festival begins on International Older Persons Day, Saturday 1st October 2016.

The Festival promotes the richness and diversity of the Isle of Wight’s communities with events to interest all Islanders, whether you are looking to indulge in familiar activities or discover something entirely new.

A major highlight of the Festival is our Celebrating Age Awards on Thursday 6th October where we will be celebrating the fantastic contribution that older people make to the Isle of Wight at the annual awards held at Lakeside Spa Hotel.
