Communities across New South Wales will come alive with music, art, sporting and health events for seniors this February, as more than 100 organisations prepare to host events and activities to celebrate the 2019 New South Wales Seniors Festival.

Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies today announced 120 organisations will receive New South Wales Government funding to support their events, and revealed the 2019 festival theme will be ‘Love Your Life’.

“Valentine’s Day has been the inspiration for the festival theme, a playful take on the traditional celebration of love at this time of year.” Minister Davies said.

“There’s so much to love about life at any age and there’s so much to love about the New South Wales Seniors Festival this February.”

“New South Wales Government wants to celebrate seniors and create exciting opportunities for older people to get out in the community, kick up their heels and meet others while sharing new experiences.” Minister Davies said.

Grant recipients will host events and activities in Sydney as well as regional and remote locations across New South Wales, from special twilight cinemas for seniors in Sydney’s west to modified sporting events for seniors in Dubbo.

Highly anticipated Premier’s Gala Concerts and Seniors Expo will once again be held at the International Convention Centre, Darling Harbour, with dates and tickets to be announced soon.

“I want to encourage seniors to make the most of the festival, visit the Expo in Darling Harbour and get involved in as many local events as possible happening right across the State.” Minister Davies said.

New South Wales Seniors Festival 2019 is the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and runs from Wednesday 13 February until Sunday 24 February, 2019.
