Aiming to build on the success of 2016, we have put together a more expansive and wider reaching Festival for 2017. OPF 2017 is stacked with great events that aim to highlight and celebrate the contributions people aged 50+ make to our unique City. We look forward to offering our ever-increasing number of older people a fantastic two weeks, and hope to leave them with some great memories.

Our aim this year is to focus on the pathways that support full and effective participation in old age in accordance with an older persons basic rights needs and preferences.

25th September – 8th October 2017

A huge welcome to the second Brighton and Hove Older People’s Festival. We have built on last year’s award winning OPF to put together an even bigger and wider reaching Festival for this year. It is packed with great events which highlight the contributions people aged 50+ make to our wonderful City and which we hope will give the City’s ever increasing number of older people a fantastic time and create some great memories.

Our aim this year is to focus on the pathways that support full and effective participation in old age in accordance with an older persons basic rights needs and preferences.

The Older People’s Festival is inspired by the UN’s International Older People’s day which is held on 1st October each year.

Impact Initiatives has made this year’s Festival possible by way of a successful collaboration with Brighton & Hove City Council, voluntary sector organisations and local businesses. We have worked with some brilliant people, all of whom have been instrumental in organising this year’s two week long event, including the fabulous teams at Osomi and SEA PR, as well as our amazing photographer Maria Scard, and many more who have generously donated their time and resources.

We hope that people will be encouraged to get involved, try something new or simply enjoy some of what the City has to offer, connect with like-minded people and above all have a great time celebrating being aged 50+.
