Greater Manchester Festival of ageing - for everyone aged 50+!

Ambition for Ageing is a programme aimed at creating more age friendly places and empowering people to live fulfilling lives as they age. It is funded by the Big Lottery Fund’s Ageing Better programme, which aims to reduce social isolation of older people. Led by GMCVO, the programme is being delivered by a cross sector partnership via a series of scaled programmes, one of which is the Greater Manchester Festival of Ageing.

The Festival of Ageing will take place from the 2nd to the 15th July and is aimed at all those who are aged over 50 and living in Greater Manchester. It is being co-ordinated by a partnership of five groups, 4CT (a charity in Manchester), HMR Circle (in Rochdale), Manchester Metropolitan University Age Friendly Team, Persona (in Bury) and Wigan Athletic Community Trust.

There will be a range of activities on offer, fun, music, dancing, hobbies, physical activities, information and lots of opportunities join in with events both local to you and further afield.

If you work with anybody aged over 50 (or are aged over 50 yourself), then get involved!

There will be a main event in each of 8 GM Boroughs and lots more small neighbourhood events and activities across Greater Manchester. We currently have over 200 events registered, you can find more details on our webpage at
