Throughout the year we put on community events and fundraisers to help us raise money to run the vital activities and services that we offer to older poeple in Barnet. At the moment we are unable to hold any face to face events, so we will be holding live online events - some of which will be available to view after the event. If you or anyone you know might need help getting set up online we have volunteers who can help. Just contact us on or 020 8203 5040.

There is no charge for our musical events but we welcome any donations. Click here for our JustGiving page. Enjoy!
