Ageing Well Festival

East Sussex Seniors’ Association (ESSA) has now had 13 successful years of celebrating Older People’s Day (traditionally celebrated on 1 October) with events across the county.

Last year, with the support of seniors forums across the county, we shook things up. 2020 saw the launch of the all new Ageing Well Festival, bringing a vibrant and empowering outlook on life after 50.

As a result of COVID-19, and on advice from East Sussex Public Health, it was not possible to arrange and promote physical events for 2020′s celebration. Instead, event organisers were quick to adapt, bringing the people of East Sussex a number of virtual events and a series of inspirational stories.

A similar range of events will take place in 2021. You can find out more about the Ageing Well Festival, and the events that are taking place, on the Your East Sussex website:

For all participants and organisers, we look forward to an enjoyable, informative and safe time at the 2021 events.
