Day dedicated to Hackney’s old folk

Event offering massage sessions and drama workshops for those aged 50+

Hackney’s old folk are invited to a day dedicated to them on Monday.

The event celebrates ten years of the Older People’s Reference Group - a forum set up to consult older people about services, which is funded by City and Hackney Primary Care Trust.

Hundreds of Hackney residents aged 50+ are anticipated to attend dozens of different workshops including drama, complementary therapies and Nordic walking, and then enjoy a free lunch.

There will also be performances from Kingsmead Primary School’s children’s steel band and Jewish folk music band, London Klezmer Quartet.

The event takes place on Monday October 25 from 10am to 3.30 pm at the Petchey Academy in Shacklewell Lane.
