An afternoon with Dr Lucy Pollock

Contact details

01823 345627

Join us at the Winter Gardens in Weston super Mare on 11th February 2022 for an Afternoon with Dr Lucy Pollock

Dr Lucy will be giving an amusing, informative & compassionate talk about ageing with stories and lessons from her fantastic and well received book 'The Book about Getting Older (for people who don't want to talk about it)'.

The Winter Gardens is not only a beautiful venue with parking close by, it is also large enough that we can ensure social distancing for the audience. 

We are grateful to our sponsors Alliance Homes and to Weston College for their support of this event.  All profits will be used to make life better for older people in the area.
