Age of Creativity Festival

The Age of Creativity Festival celebrates the extraordinary range of Age Friendly creative and cultural work taking place across England and reaches out into our community to help more people get involved. This is our chance to develop new audiences and connect with people who have significant barriers to taking part, because we know the positive impact creativity could have on their lives is tremendous. So get involved! Add your events to our festival programme or generate new opportunities for older people to get creative and help us bring more culture into the lives of older people.

List your event

The theme for the 2019 Age of Creativity Festival is Intergenerational Work, because we know the immeasureable value of bringing together communities and generations. However, the festival still exists to celebrate older people as audiences, participants, volunteers and artists. We want to showcase an eclectic mix of tastes, styles, art-forms and interests that are Age Friendly, and provide the consideration and support that enables older people to produce, create and enjoy creativity up and down the country.

If you're new to creative Age Friendly delivery, then read our Age Friendly guide. If you want to develop your intergenerational practice, then get inspiration on the Age of Creativity network website.


After a stonking festival in October 2018, showcasing 320 events across England, it is now time to focus on 2019. Things are a bit different this time...

  • The festival moves from October to the 1st - 31st May 2019
  • The main programme will remain online, but regional printed brochures will be distributed across England
  • We are hosting a headline conference event in Manchester on 2 May to launch festival month
  • There will be a mass participatory project for the whole of England which will run throughout the festival
  • We are inviting you to take over Twitter and support our intergenerational Instagram

To get involved, simply add your event to our online programme here. If it's creative and supports older people as audiences, participants, volunteers or artists, then we want it in our programme. If you are holding training or partnership events that support creative ageing projects during May 2019, then it also belongs in our programme. We will do everything we can to market the programme to new audiences both online and through printed copy.
