Welcome to the first Dudley Ageing Well Festival. During the week of 25 September – 01 October 2023, lots of fun and helpful activities are taking place across the borough to celebrate later life and ageing well. Join us for crafts to cycling, wellness to walking or digital skills to drumming. Thanks to all the community groups and organisations who have helped put together the festival activities – there is something for everyone

We advise you to contact group leaders before attending any of the activities to check details are still correct.  Also most activities require advanced booking.
