Art and culture for older people

There are lots of ways to get involved with arts and culture such as theatre, galleries, museums and orchestras. It can improve your sense of well-being, physical health and is a great way to socialise.

The organisations listed below have worked together to produce activities and events for older people.

For more general information on museums and galleries to visit go to:

Become a Culture Champion!
Our Culture Champions work with us to help promote and lead on cultural activities in the community and with cultural venues to design events for older people.

For more information about age-friendly cultural events in the city or our Culture Champion scheme, please contact Claire Cowell on
