Aiming to build on the success of 2017, we have put together a more expansive and wider reaching Festival for 2018. OPF 2018 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 ageing well in Brighton & Hove.

Last October 2017 we put on nearly 100 events over the 2 week festival period. Have a look at the video below to get a flavour of what we did. This year we will be co-ordinating even more events with more variation and interest so do come back to find out how you could get involved, or just join in.

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 team at Osomi, as well as our amazing photographer Maria Scard, and many more who have generously donated their time and resources.

We have worked with some amazing people to put the Festival together including Ruth Watson and Sam Waters at Osomi, Tracey Allen at SEA PR, Maria Scard our amazing photographer and many more who have donated their time and resources to make it all possible.

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+.
