25th September – 8th October 2017

The 2017 Older People’s Festival returns to Brighton & Hove to celebrate and focus once again on the talents, contributions and participation of older people in the city. This year we are going to ‘Step into the Future’ by tapping into the talent of the past, and will be showcasing events and activities by older people and for older people which will inspire, excite and motivate us all.

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. The Brighton and Hove festival will run for two weeks across the city from 25th September – 8th October inclusively.

The Festival will be widely promoted on our Social Media, so please like and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The Festival Programme will be distributed from the beginning of September so do look out for it around the city.
