BE OLDER. BE BOLDER. BE PROUD.
It’s time to feel good about ageing. This is the message of the first Age Proud Festival in Leeds from Monday 6th September to Friday 17th September.
It will kick off officially on Monday 6th Sept 10.30am at West Yorkshire Playhouse with a range of events and tasters for you to try – watch the Heydays dancers, listen to the People’s Choir, have a go at putting on a Sari, create a collage of sunflowers….you choose!
There is a dizzying array of events being held throughout the two weeks both in Leeds City Museum and in many local communities – see THIS PAGE and click on a date for the full lists of local events. Enjoy a swim at Bramley Baths for £2 any weekday of the Festival at 12 noon, learn how to start a family history using Ancestry.com at an interactive session at Armley Community Hub, go on a tour of Leeds Central Library, join a webinar about ‘being an ancient in a modern world….the list goes on.
Now that we can go out and mix more, why not give some of these events a try!
