Themed “Reconnect”, the 2022 NSW Seniors Festival program aims to help us come back from the isolation of the last two years.

You’ll find lots of experiences this year to share with others. Geared to stimulate the mind, spark joy and boost health, the program emphasises the in-person gatherings that have been in short supply of late.

Been missing the concert experience? Shannon Noll, Christine Anu, Phil Burton of Human Nature and more will join the line-up at the Premier’s Gala Concerts.

Classical more your style? The Cellists of the Metropolitan Orchestra will be playing in Balmain.

Or are you craving some joint-friendly sport? Walking basketball, golf, biking, and physical training are all on the menu.

The curious are invited to learn how to explore their family history, and join an interactive, and possibly very nostalgic museum experience.

Plus, for the laughs, there’ll be stand-up comedy as well.

And when you feel like a little refreshment, you can stop by historic Collingwood House, for high tea.
