The 2016 Victorian Seniors Festival approaches.

Starting on October 2 and running until October 9, the annual event celebrates the contribution of older Australians to our community. 

This year’s theme is, “Diversity, telling our stories.”

Both the City of Greater Bendigo and Mount Alexander Shire Council have posted their programs on their respective websites. 

Mount Alexander Shire Council program highlights include a seniors cricket match on October 2, a theatre show on October 4, a dance in Newstead on October 9, a lunch and movie at Metcalfe on October 11, and a free concert on October 14.

Print programs are available from the Civic Centre, Castlemaine Library, general stores, Visitor Information Centres, and other key locations throughout the shire.
