The City of Greater Bendigo is proud to support the 36th Victorian Seniors Festival taking place from October 7 to 14, 2018 and featuring a range of free or low-cost events and activities for our senior residents.
The festival has been designed to celebrate the wonderful contribution of older Australians to our community and the City hopes our senior residents will embrace this opportunity to join in and enjoy the variety of events on offer.
Highlights of this year’s program include the opening event - The Bobby Darin Tribute Show at the Capital Theatre. In this show crooner Paul Hogan sings some of Darin’s classic hits including Dream Lover, Mack the Knife, Beyond the Sea, Splish Splash and more. It’s for people who are passionate about music from the 50’s and 60’s.
Other events taking place include dance classes, walking groups, come and try days, fun and laughter, information sessions, gardening, lunches, afternoon teas and even a lesson on the art of flying remote controlled aircraft.
Regional bus services and V/Line bus and train services will offer free public transport for Victorian Seniors Card holders from Sunday October 7 to Sunday October 14.

The Social in Seniors Week
The festival experience is all about getting out and about in your local community and beyond. It is a month long celebration offering more than 2000 occasions for fun, pleasure and your chance to try something new or different, in a friendly atmosphere at little or no cost to you.
You can catch up with friends and attend a festival event together or meet new people when you go off to explore something on your own. Every council across the state gets involved in the festival, hosting events and arranging the calendar to tempt you out of that armchair.
