Ageing Well Festival

Ageing Well Festival 2017

The Ageing Well Festival is an annual event that features many activities and performances going on for you to either watch or participate in. So far we’ve hosted two Ageing Well Festivals –  one in 2015 at various sites around Torbay, and another in 2016 at Torre Abbey.

Our next Ageing Well Festival will be on the 30th of September, 10am-6pm at Lupton House, Churston Ferrers. The event will be 1960s-themed, with activities focusing on Health and Wellbeing. These include free talks, arts & crafts, music, dancing, workshops, exhibits, stalls and more!

PARKING

Parking for the festival is off site, due to the limited space at Lupton House. A park and ride style carpark will be available from a field on Kennels Road, with Shuttle buses taking people from the field to Lupton House and back. There will be sign-posts for the car park, as well as Ageing Well Torbay flags. Here’s a Google Maps link to the car park: https://goo.gl/maps/y9qkkLB85rD2
