Join the Celebrating Age Festival with 100+ diverse events and activities for the over 50’s during October 2019

Age Friendly Island are delighted to co-ordinate the fourth Celebrating Age Festival. With over 100 activities to choose from, there is plenty of variety for people to participate in. Last year, nearly 900 people joined in the diverse range of activities. Feedback from last year’s festival has led to extending the opportunities over the whole of October. This way, people can plan and try as many different events as they like.

The Age Friendly Island Team are very grateful to all of the organisations who have stepped forward to be part of this year’s Festival. There are regular coffee mornings, card afternoons and Shed events, or if you are looking for something a bit different, you could learn to surf, work with horses, groom a donkey or play a hand of Bridge.

The hotly anticipated Southern Vectis Mystery Tour is back with the theme of the Swinging Sixties. Or if you prefer something gentler, travel by steam with the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. You can get your benefits checked, your hearing aids sorted and get advice to stay steady on your feet. The contact details are on each brochure entry, so please get in touch if there is something specific that tickles your fancy.

Please download your full events booklet here: Celebrating Age Festival Booklet 2019

If you would like a physical copy than please contact us on (01983) 525282 or email and ask for the Age Friendly island Team.

Thank you and enjoy the festival!

This project is part of the Age Friendly Island partnership. Age Friendly Island is part of Ageing Better, a programme set up by The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK. Ageing Better aims to develop creative ways for older people to be actively involved in their local communities, helping to combat social isolation and loneliness. It is one of five major programmes set up by The National Lottery Community Fund to test and learn from new approaches to designing services which aim to make people’s lives healthier and happier.
