Willoughby's Seniors Celebrations 2016

24 March 2016


Residents aged 55 and over are invited to take part in Willoughby’s annual Seniors Celebrations! Sponsored by Willoughby City Council and supported by local community organisations and businesses, the 2016 programme features more than 30 free or specially discounted events and activities for seniors this April.

The highlight of the programme will be the annual Seniors Celebrations Variety Concert on Tuesday 19 April in the fully accessible Civic Pavilion on The Concourse, Chatswood. The concert will include live music and entertainment, followed by a delicious afternoon tea.

Another highlight is the quirky workshop, The Art of a Stylish Selfie on Saturday 9 April at the Dougherty Community Centre. The workshop is a fun, intergenerational event for seniors to explore the art of taking photos with a phone, iPad or other mobile device with a child or grandchild! 

Other events include free exercise sessions at Willoughby Leisure Centre, art exhibitions, performances, talks and information sessions, open days and more.

"The Seniors Celebrations programme demonstrates our region’s diverse community and the active involvement of the many wonderful community groups and organisations we have in Willoughby," said Willoughby Mayor, Gail Giles-Gidney.

"Our Seniors Celebrations could not happen without the help and support of all those involved – to our community, residents, community groups, government services - thank you for your contribution and participation," she said.

The Seniors Celebrations programme will be delivered to your home, or you can pick up a copy from Council’s Libraries, Services Centre or other locations across the City.
