Arts Events Listing
This is a national listing of cultural events welcoming to older people. It includes events taking place throughout the year.
The Arts Events Listing was inspired by Bealtaine Festival participants asking if it were possible to promote events which happen outside of the festival month of May.
Events include concerts, dance, workshops, discussions, exhibitions, tours, screenings and much more.
If your event is accessible and inclusive of older people please add it to the Listing. Simply register or log in to add your event.
