With a successful 9 year track record the 50+ Festival is now firmly on the York calendar for citizens and visitors to enjoy. The 50+ Festival is a grassroots affair put on by people who want to share what they have to offer to the community. What is a taster session today may well become a regular weekly hobby as people discover new interests and ways of keeping healthy in body and mind.
FULL OF LIFE, a government initiative, promotes a celebration of the International Day of Older People (1st October) all over the country. Our festival preceded them by about 3 years and we are delighted now to be able to join with other villages, towns and cities in national recognition of the vast resources inherent in Britain's older population.
