York 50+ Festival


The York Older People's Assembly presents their 10th annual

YORK 50+ FESTIVAL 2014 Saturday 27 September - Sunday 5 October

This year we have an amazing diversity of over 130 events for our 10th Anniversary!

  • Sport & Active Leisure (thanks to CYC Sport & Active Leisure and clubs around the city) 49 events
  • Health & Wellbeing 24 events
  • Workshops 19 events
  • Socials 11 events
  • Displays and Open Days 11 events
  • Shows/Films 9 events
  • Talks 9 events

Organised by local enthusiastic individuals and groups

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.
