Celebrate later life at Dudley's Ageing Well Festival

Older people in Dudley borough will be able to enjoy a series of fun and helpful events next week dedicated to celebrating later life.

Dudley Council’s public health team has organised the inaugural Ageing Well Festival, which will begin on Monday 25 September and conclude on International Older People’s Day on Sunday 1 October.

More than 80 events hosted by community groups and organisations will be taking place in different venues across the borough.

The activities include a mix of informative and interactive sessions on crafts, cycling, walking, drumming, digital skills, wellness and more.

People aged 40 and over are invited to come along to the events and get motivated and inspired to change the way they age, meet people and take part in fun activities. Councillor Ian Bevan, cabinet member for public health, said:

“We’ve worked with some fantastic community groups and local organisations to put on a wide range of events for Dudley’s first Ageing Well Festival.

“There really is something for everyone across the week and all of these sessions will offer some valuable advice on how to have a better later life, regardless of your background or fitness level.

“The events will be fun and welcoming and focus on all areas of life, not only your physical health but also your emotional, social and mental wellbeing.”

The full programme of events taking place during the Ageing Well Festival is available on the Let’s Get Healthy Dudley website.

More information about the festival is also available from all 13 borough libraries.
