We received some fantastic feedback from our Celebration of Age event. Take a look at what the community thought about it below:

Thanks for the great day out on Saturday. A wonderful experience for all those lucky enough to be invited. The whole two hours packed with very talented young people working very hard to entertain the older members of our community. You really did us proud, lots of happy faces in the room. Well done to everyone involved.

A day to remember. On entering Saturday’s venue I was transported back in time. The music was uplifting, the atmosphere electric. The joy on the young peoples faces was a pleasure to see. What did I enjoy most? I enjoyed every minute of it! It was a delight to see the portrayal of my days, the singing and the voices in unison excellent. May you go from strength to strength. Congratulations and many thanks for a wonderful afternoon, not forgetting the tasty sandwiches, cakes and scones.
