The curiously-named Celebrating Age Festival is being held in Bristol from 28 September to 3 October 2009, featuring events and activities at various venues around the city for those of its residents well afflicted by Anno Domini. The Celebrating Age Festival publicity page on Bristol City Council’s website announces that:
During the week older people will be able to sample and enjoy lots of different activities and events at venues right across the city:
- Exercise and healthy activities – fitness workshop, supervised gym sessions, yoga and walks around beautiful parts of Bristol.
Creative sessions – painting and drawing, singing and tea dancing with refreshments.
Support and guidance for developing computer skills.
Needless to say, we’ll be looking at the final item in the list. 😉
