Celebrating age festival

The Celebrating Age Festival was first set up in 2008 in response to Bristol Older People’s Strategy. Its vision is to: a) recognise the positive value of older people and combat age discrimination b) place older people at the centre of thinking and planning services and c) actively promote independence and wellbeing.

This year’s festival was themed “Brilliant in Bristol: Many Neighbourhoods, Many Cultures, One City” to reflect the talent and the diversity of older people across the city.

Chief Executive of Age UK Bristol Mark Baker summed it all up when he said: “Being 55 and over can be a great time in people’s lives. A time to be creative, a time to achieve the things we haven’t previously found the time for. A time to pass knowledge and experience on and a time to help other. This is the essence of the Celebrating Age Festival”.

The Festival also includes The Achievements of Older People Awards set up to recognise people over 55 who are unsung heroes and have made a difference to people’s lives.

As project managers for the festival for the last six years, we really enjoy working with so many active groups and some truly inspiring individuals.
