Age of Creativity Festival 2018

The next Age of Creativity Festival will run 1 - 14 October 2018. The festival celebrates everyone who takes part in creativity as audiences, participants, volunteers and artists in later life. Why celebrate? Because it's good for you (according to the experts), it's fun (according to everyone) and we want more people to have the chance to take part than ever before.

This year's theme is 'partnership' - we can't make the festival happen without you. We want to strengthen and develop meaningful partnerships with people across a wide variety of different sectors - and support you to do the same. If you are running/organising something creative that includes older people as audiences, participants, volunteers or artists then let us know! Appearing in our festival programme will help you to reach new audiences locally, as well as raise the profile of our work nationally.

Who? This festival is for people aged 50+.
What? Creative and cultural opportunities for audiences, participants, volunteers and artists.
Where? Across England.
When? 1 - 14 October 2018
Why? To share an eclectic range of creative opportunities for older people to enjoy, whatever their taste, passion or ability.
How? Events can be listed via our online form. Listed events will appear on the interactive map below with postcode search function, so visitors can find what's happening in their own local area. Download the Age of Creativity Festival logo to add to your marketing materials.
