About the Seniors Festival

Get into this October with the Manningham Seniors Festival supported by the Victorian Government as part of Victorian Seniors Festival with more than 2,500 free or low cost events across Victoria.

The festival gives us a wonderful opportunity to celebrate, have some fun, try something new and make new friends.

We’re delighted to bring you a jam-packed program of Council and community run-events including workshops, health and fitness and celebration activities across Manningham.

We’re excited to launch this year’s festival on Wednesday 2 October with a special Wine and Cheese Music Evening – All you need is love! a tribute to the Beatles with the Australian Beetlez Show. Supported by Vals Cafe in celebration of LGBTIQ community.  Once again, we are hosting the ever popular Seniors Morning Tea and partnering with Victoria Police to present a Senior Safety and Wellbeing Café Chat where you will learn about safety and wellbeing topics.

Most events are free or low cost to attend, but bookings are essential, so book early to avoid disappointment.

For a full list of events, pick up a copy of the Manningham Seniors Festival Program booklet from Manningham Civic Centre or your local library.
