Celebrating Age Festival, an annual event returning to Bristol next month, is designed to showcase what’s going on for people over the age of 50 in the city.


Running throughout the whole month of October with at least one activity per day, a range of low-cost and free events including musical performances, art exhibitions and reading groups among others will be on offer.


The festival is run by Age UK Bristol, an independent charity working on behalf of older people, their families and carers in the city.


Originally formed in 1994, the organisation has grown to become one of the largest charities offering this kind of support for people in the South West.


Celebrating Age Festival, set to begin on Saturday 1 October, will feature an array of events and activities from shared reading groups, mini animation workshops and a Latin language group.
