Seniors Festival

Seniors Festival is an annual festival running from February - March, which offers a range of fun and sociable events catering for seniors of all interests. The aim is to encourage seniors to find new interests, meet new people and learn about the wide range of local services and resources available in the community.

Everything for Seniors Day - no need to book, just come along

Tuesday 19 February, 10am to 3pm
St Ives Village Green and Community Hall next to St Ives Shopping Village

This free community event will provide seniors and their families with everything they need to know about local activities and services.

Community organisations, clubs and groups will invite seniors to 'join the fun' in a range of activities. There will be information stalls where you can chat to home support staff about how to access services, as well as delicious low-cost refreshments available on the Village Green.

We will have presentations, musical performances and talks in the Community Hall, where seniors can 'come & try' Chair Yoga and Zumba, listen to talks by Petrea King from Quest for Life and other health specialists, and enjoy entertainment provided by the Eco-pella choir, ‘Bollywood’ singers and Chinese performers.
