Reimagine Ageing Festival 2019

Saturday, 16 February 2019
Who says getting older means slowing down? Penrith Council believes that ‘old’ is just a state of mind, which is why we hold the Reimagine Ageing Festival for people over 50 every year.

This year our celebration will be held on Saturday 16 February at Thornton Community Centre and Ron Mulock Oval.

Come along to enjoy free food and entertainment, and join in a range of fun activities aimed at helping remind us that age isn't a barrier to loving your life.

Join us at the Festival to get active, get creative and stay connected:
Saturday 16 February
5 - 8pm
Thornton Community Centre and Ron Mulock Oval,
61 Lord Sheffield CCT, Thornton
(3 minute walk from Penrith Station)

Whether you want to kick back and relax, enjoy live music and performances, challenge a friend to a game of chess or table tennis, grab a delicious bite to eat, or learn about the great range of local groups and services on offer, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Local organisations will also be there, sharing the interesting events, classes and activities happening around Penrith, all year.
