Local seniors across NSW are being encouraged to enjoy new experiences, continue learning, impart their skill and have fun, in the lead up to the 2019 NSW Seniors Festival.
With the theme ‘Love your life’, the festival celebrates older people in the community and encourages them to live active and connected lives.
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 local events and online.
The festival will run for 12 days from Wednesday, February 13 to Sunday, February 24 across NSW.
“We’re really looking forward to bringing the festival to the MidCoast again this year,” said Chris Jones, manager of MidCoast Libraries.
“The theme, ‘Love your life’ sends a really positive message about health and the importance of looking after yourself, but also celebrates getting older.”
