Stage for Age

Barbara WindsorStage for Age was founded in 1989 by a group of show business personalities to support the work of Help the Aged – and now supports Age UK. It was the brainchild of the late television magnate Sir Ian Trethowan. Robert Powell was its first Chairman.

By attending events and photocalls, making personal appearances and giving press and television interviews, the Stage for Age committee members promote a greater understanding of Age UK’s vision of a world where people in later life flourish.

As well as helping to raise the profile of the charity, Stage for Age has held its own successful fundraising initiatives over the years, including quiz nights, City luncheons, golf days, race days, dinners and wine tasting evenings.

One of the highlights of the year is the annual carol concert held in London. Love Christmas is a non-religious evening celebrating the festive season with readings and performances from celebrities.

The current Chairman is actor Christopher Biggins. Lionel Blair is Vice Chairman. Vice Presidents include Sylvia Syms OBE, Brian Murphy, Roy Hudd OBE, Robert Powell and Diana Moran.
