FESTIVAL BRINGS CHEER
Festivals aren’t just for the young, they’re also for the young at heart with Lendlease Retirement Villages holding a Spring Retirement Festival this month and next.
Some of Australia’s most celebrated performers, entertainers, musicians, comedians and experts-in-their-fields (including gardening experts and culinary whizzes) are getting ready to provide festival frivolity around the country.
Lendlease Retirement Living managing director Tony Randello said Lendlease Retirement Villages were full of vibrant people who knew that age had nothing to do with having fun or getting the most out of life.
“It’s the perfect place to host an event that celebrates life, celebrates joy and celebrates getting older with all the vibrancy you can muster,” Mr Randello said.
“It’s also the perfect opportunity to meet new people and have a laugh – whether or not you’re already a resident.
“The Spring Retirement Festival is a celebration of everything you live for now.
“It’s the joy of getting older, remaining vital and having the perspective to appreciate it all.”
For the past four years, the festival was contained to Queensland only and was being fully booked out within 10 days of ticket release.
This year, it’s going national – bigger, better and more exciting than ever. But you can forget about paying thousands of dollars for the privilege.
The Spring Retirement Festival is free for over-55s, and conveniently located in Lendlease Retirement Villages around the country.
The notion of Retirement Living is clearly evolving and Lendlease said its communities were full of vibrant people and the perfect place to host an event that celebrated life, joy and getting older.
This year’s program will contain a mix of headline and local acts, encompassing the idea of creative ageing. There will be entertainment, arts and culture, crafts, comedy, music, cooking and dancing.
Bookings are essential and can be made by going online – visit springretirementfestival.com.au or calling the Spring Retirement Festival hotline 1800 550 550.
