Lithgow Celebrates 2018 NSW Seniors Festival

Local seniors are invited to enjoy a free lunch and a show at Lithgow Library on Thursday 5 April as part of this year’s Seniors Festival.

“The Seniors Festival is an opportunity for people of all ages to join together and celebrate the valuable contributions of older people,” said Mayor of Lithgow City Council, Cr Stephen Lesslie. “This year will mark the 60th anniversary of the Seniors Festival, so its set to be extra special,” said the Mayor.

By popular demand, the Tailspinners are back with homespun stories and favourite songs of yesterday. Their performance will be from 11am to 12pm, followed by lunch at Lithgow Library, 157 Main street Lithgow.

The dynamic duo, Christine and Lisa, will take their audience back in time and feature a number of “I remember when”…performances. The Tailspinners firmly believe in the power of story-telling as a means for bringing people together.

With the theme ‘Let’s do more together’, the seniors festival promotes inclusive communities and provides an opportunity for seniors to connect with the broader community, and remain active and engaged in their local communities.

The NSW Seniors Festival is the largest festival for people over 60 in the Southern Hemisphere, attracting up to 500,000 seniors across the state to events and online. It has continued to grow each year since it began and will be celebrating its 60th birthday in 2018.

Bookings are essential, so please call Viktoria Gulabovski, Community Development Officer, on 6354 9909.
