OPF 2018

24th September – 7th October 2018

Listings for 2018 events which took place are available here

 

Aiming to build on the success of 2017, we put together a more expansive and wider-reaching Festival for 2018. OPF 2018 was stacked with great events that aimed to highlight and celebrate the contributions people aged 50+ make to our unique City. We offered our ever-increasing number of older people a fantastic two weeks, and hope that we managed to leave everyone with some great memories.

Our aim in 2018 was to focus on ageing well in Brighton & Hove.

OPF 2017

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 made this year’s Festival possible by way of a successful collaboration with Brighton & Hove City Council, voluntary sector organisations and local businesses. We worked with some brilliant people, all of who were instrumental in organising 2018’s two weeks-long event, including the fabulous team at Osomi, as well as our amazing photographer Maria Scard, and many more who generously donated their time and resources.

We hope that people were encouraged to get involved, tried something new, simply enjoyed some of what the City has to offer, connected with like-minded people and – above all – had a great time celebrating being aged 50+.
