There’s still a chance to sign up for the fun activities and events that are on offer with Portsmouth City Council’s popular 60+ Festival, which is running from Sunday 1 October to Sunday 15 October.

Anyone 60 years and older can take advantage of a variety of activities, ranging from cooking to ballet, and from guitar lessons to bingo.

With lots of activities to choose from, the festival provides an exciting opportunity for anyone wanting to try something a bit different, learn new skills or meet new people. Most of the activities and events are free.

Many of these events are easily reached by public transport. Please walk, cycle, scoot or use public transport wherever possible.

The timetable for all the events and activities are available in the festival’s online brochure. There are also paper copies of the brochure available in libraries throughout the city.
