City of Canterbury Bankstown is encouraging local seniors to ‘reach beyond’ as it hosts a jam-packed program to celebrate the NSW Seniors Festival next month.

Locals aged 55 years and over can take part in more than 50 exciting events and activities running from 4-28 March 2024.

The program caters for the diverse needs and interests of seniors, including bus trips to Berry, learn to line dance workshops, jolly jigsaw afternoons and so much more.

The popular Canterbury-Bankstown Seniors Concert will be back at Bankstown Sports Club on Thursday 21 March with Back to Tivoli, an upbeat line-up of entertainment.

There is also a range of activities available to help keep seniors healthy and active, including golf days, pickleball, laughter yoga and dance fit sessions.

Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Bilal El-Hayek said the NSW Seniors Festival is the largest gathering of seniors in CBCity and an important opportunity to celebrate their contributions.

“Our senior citizens have played a crucial role in building the foundations of our City today,” Mayor El-Hayek said.

“Last year, we saw thousands come together to celebrate and connect with our diverse range of activities.

“And as this year’s theme ‘Reach Beyond’ points out, I encourage all seniors in our City to get out of their comfort zones and try something new.

“We have some exciting new offerings this year including fishing, sustainable jewellery making and new locations for our bus trips. Take advantage of the many wonderful activities, have fun and meet new people!”

Informative workshops by Seniors Rights Service will also be available to offer tips on keeping safe, planning ahead and managing finances, along with sessions by Services NSW to navigate the Savings Finder website.

Tickets for the bus trips are on sale at Campsie and Bankstown Customer Service Centres and concert tickets are on sale at Bankstown Sports Club.
