Seniors Festival 2020
About the festival
Usually we are busy supporting many local events this time of year. However, Council has suspended local events, following Victorian Government recommendations to protect the health of our residents.
This year the Victorian Seniors Festival has been reimagined and is being delivered directly into your home from now until the end of October 2020.
- The theme of the Victorian Seniors Festival 2020 is "In the groove"
- The 2020 festival has been moved online this year due to COVID-19
- The festival program includes online performances and radio.
- Music and entertainment from the past to contemporary artists
- Interviews with artists prior to each performance
- Online performances are added to weekly and can be accessed anytime
The above link will take you to the latest performances. There is also a menu on this page to find earlier performances.
You can listen to the Radio Reimagined program anytime.
- nostalgic and contemporary music
- radio plays of long-established works by Alan Hopgood and Agatha Christie
- new plays commissioned by the Victorian Seniors Festival
