Tickets for all 20 Celebrage events are now available, with everyone encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment.
Celebrage is Warrnambool’s take on the Victorian Seniors Festival with a series of free and low cost events running throughout October.
1970s rockers Spectrum will perform at the Lighthouse Theatre on October 3 while the festival will also include a classic car tour, pampering sessions, art workshops, garden tours and lots more.
Warrnambool Mayor Cr Vicki Jellie said that Celebrage was the perfect opportunity socialise, learn something new or just enjoy yourself.
“With so many different activities as part of the festival, Celebrage is all about showing you different ways to live well in Warrnambool,” she said.
“The past two years have been isolating for everyone, especially for seniors, so it’s fabulous to see such a diverse calendar of events for Celebrage this year to help more people get out and join the fun.
“I think the Spectrum concert especially is an event not to miss. They had a Number 1 single in 1970 with ‘I’ll Be Gone’ and when you think about the calibre of music from that time, that’s no mean feat.
“While all of the events are either free or heavily discounted, the most popular activities regularly book out each year, so please get in contact with the Archie Graham Centre and book in as soon as possible.”
Celebrage regular Alan Richardson said that he was looking forward to a busy October.
“The last two to three years have been an absolute nightmare in respect to getting out and about, so it’s absolutely fantastic that it’s back to full capacity,” he said.
“It brings you out from home and invites you out to socialise and just explore the other opportunities that you think ‘I’ll get around to doing that one day’ but your never do.”
As part of the festival, Seniors Card Holders can also enjoy free public transport from October 2-9 and half price entry to Flagstaff Hill from October 1-31.
