Cessnock gears up for Seniors Festival

Cessnock City Council has released its 2023 Cessnock City Seniors Festival program which it says is packed with concerts, films, talks, workshops, open days, and more.

Featuring a range of free events and activities across the LGA, the 2023 Cessnock City Seniors Festival will run from 1 to 12 February 2023 and the theme for this year is ‘Celebrate Together’.

This year’s program provides an opportunity for seniors to come together and engage with the creative arts, local businesses, health and wellbeing practices, heritage and an array of special interest activities.

Cessnock City Council Mayor, Jay Suvaal said the event was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our seniors and bring together more than 25 community services and organisations.

“I urge all seniors in our community to take part in this year’s Festival and discover the variety of offerings available,” said Mayor Suvaal.

“It’s an opportunity to try something new and make the most of the celebratory atmosphere.

“The festival reflects the strength of our community bonds and Council is very proud to be a part of it.”

Festival highlights this year include Celebrating the Joy of Music, a Wine Country Association Concert at the PACC, a Ukulele Dreaming Mini Concert, and It’s All in Your Own Backyard hosted by the Hunter Valley Information Centre. Northern Coalfields Community Care Association Community Transport will provide door-to-door transport to most events for a gold coin donation.
