People aged 50+ in Brighton & Hove can try out more than 100 events in more than 50 venues across the city in this year’s Ageing Well Festival.
The two week festival formerly known as the Older People’s Festival, will run from Monday 30 September to Sunday 13 October and is set to be the biggest and best yet.

Venues include Theatre Royal, Duke of York’s cinema, the Hop 50+, Larches Café, Amex Stadium, Fabrica Gallery, Rampion Wind Farm, Brighton Table Tennis Club, and Hangleton’s St Richard’s Community Centre.
