2018 Message from the Minister for Ageing

2018 is a special year for the NSW Seniors Festival. The festival is celebrating its Diamond Anniversary after running for an extraordinary 60 years.

The Premier’s Gala Concerts are always the pinnacle event on the festival calendar. A sold out event every year 2018 will see an impressive line-up of performers putting on a spectacular show under the theme Time of Your Life.

I also encourage everyone to check out the free, two-day health and lifestyle Expo which will be held alongside the concerts. Featuring over 50 exhibitors, star-studded talent and plenty of giveaways it is sure to be both informative and entertaining.

Diamond Anniversary celebrations are also taking place in towns and cities across NSW. There is a diverse program of free and discounted Seniors Festival events which will be presented by some of the state’s leading venues and cultural institutions.

For the past 60 years, NSW Seniors Festival has been a way of acknowledging the important roles seniors play in society. The NSW Government is working to offer new experiences for older people to enjoy and ensure NSW seniors are living active socially connected lives in their later years.

The fun won’t stop when the festival ends. Thanks to the NSW Seniors Card program, you can also receive information about the many events, discounts, special offers and competitions on offer to NSW seniors throughout the year.

If you haven’t already, I encourage you to download the free NSW Seniors Card app to receive up-to-date information on events and discounts near you.

Please join me during this special Diamond Anniversary and celebrate seniors for their energy, experience and unique insights and abilities.

Enjoy your Festival.

Minister for Ageing
