Age UK Lambeth’s 16th annual Celebrating Age Festival begins on the United Nations International Day of Older Persons on 1stOctober 2014. 


The Festival promotes the richness and diversity of Lambeth communities including historical walks; visits to the newly opened Black Cultural Archives; a film about the Brixton Fairies – a Gay squat on the frontline in the 70’s; and events hosted by the Indo-American Refugee and Migrant Organisation. 


Festival highlights include nine different tours including the National Theatre, Dulwich Picture Gallery, V&A Museum, Beefeater Gin Distillery and The Old Vic Theatre.


New events are being piloted this year including an Orange Nation live music event (Thursday 23rd October) and a Film Club for Grandparents and their Grandchildren at the Cinema Museum (Sunday 19th October) where we will be showing ‘UP’.


The Festival culminates with an “Information Fair” on Friday 31st October in Lambeth Town Hall assembly room. This will be a great opportunity for residents to get useful information from around thirty organisations providing services to older people.


The Festival is funded by Age UK Lambeth and the Austin-Hope-Pilkington Trust.  Many partner organisations provide venues or services for free or at a much reduced rate. 


The Celebrating Age Festival brochure is available from community venues including libraries and more information can be found on the Age UK Lambeth website or by ringing 020 7733 0528 or 020 7346 6800.

HHMF made its 2014 foldout flyer available over the past two weekends at Market Bandstand events - but have you had one yet? If you haven't it could be delivery still hasn't come to your street. In fact, they're looking for a little delivery help if you have time to spare over the next week or so. The Festival begins on October 10th. The Festival team set itself the large task of letterboxing 40,000 flyers this year - and there are another 7,000 or so to go. So if you think you can help with a few rounds, please email:   Much appreciated!
