Festival objectives

The aim of the Festival is to promote opportunities in the community for older people to:
  • Connect with local clubs and community groups.
  • Participate in local activities.
An added bonus of the Festival is that it provides local clubs and interest groups with a great opportunity to showcase their club while being a part of an established community event.
