Where has the time gone since this time last year? While we all think about the year that's gone, we're once again proud to bring you another Banyule Seniors Festival jam packed with activities throughout the month of October.
‘It’s Your Time’ in Banyule so whatever your interests – the arts or crafts, exercising or learning, or just meeting new people – we’re sure this Festival has something for you.
This year, we’ve put together an even bigger program of Council and community run events (mostly FREE or low cost) as part of the Victoria-wide Seniors Festival.
We’ve had a wonderful response from Banyule organisations, clubs and groups that will host special events as they open their doors to seniors during October.
So have some fun and be inspired to experience something new. This is a great opportunity to explore Banyule and encounter some new people and activities.
Make sure to have a look at the Banyule Seniors Festival 2016 program for all the details.
