Celebrating the transformative power of the arts in our lives as we age, the festival showcased the talents of older people in Lewisham and cchampioned the life-enhancing benefits of creativity.

The festival ran from 13 September to 6 October 2019 across the borough of Lewisham in theatres, public spaces, community venues, care homes and many more unexpected places.

Thank you so much to the audiences, communities, artists, supporters, groups and organisations from across the borough who made it inspiring, ground-breaking and joyful.
