Older people will be ‘strutting their stuff’ down a catwalk as part of Bradford’s celebrations for Older People’s Week.

The Age UK fashion show on Friday, 3 October, at Ilkley’s Winter Garden is part of a programme of events Bradford Council and a number of organisations have helped organise across the district for Older People’s Week (Saturday, 27 September to Friday, 3 October).

Highlights in a packed programme of activities and events include history walks, a ‘Swinging Sixties Event’ at Keighley, an interior design workshop at the Delius Arts & Cultural Centre in Great Horton and a sing-along and afternoon tea session at City Hall.

Bradford Older People’s Partnership and BOPA (Bradford Older People’s Alliance) have joined with the Council to organise an information event in City Hall on Monday, 29 September at 10.30am until 2pm.  People can come to City Hall and find out more about Council services that are on offer such as libraries, museums, sports and countryside services.

Coun Amir Hussain, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Adult Services and Health, said:  “This is just a snapshot of events that are taking place all throughout the year in our district.  It is great that
during this week we can highlight the important contribution that older people make to the Bradford district and celebrate this with a range of events and activities.”
