It’s a fabulous way to start the year, with Seniors set to Celebrate in February!
Another stellar line-up of Australian acts has been secured for the highly anticipated Premier’s Gala Concerts for the 2023 NSW Seniors Festival. Kate Ceberano, Rodger Corser, Ross Wilson, Harrison Craig, and Prinnie Stevens are all scheduled to perform at the four concerts next year.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch said the concerts have been celebrating and entertaining seniors for four decades. “Seniors are a vital part of our society and have and continue to make contributions that make our region the great place it is today,” Mr Crouch said.
“These concerts are our way of celebrating and saying thank you to seniors for the decades of hard work and sacrifice they have made not only our community but broader NSW.”
Tickets to the free concerts, which will be held at Aware Super Theatre in Sydney, will be available from 9am Wednesday, today, via Ticketek.
Minister for Seniors Mark Coure said the concerts are always really popular, and more than 30,000 are expected to attend next year.
“The concerts will also be live streamed for people to watch from home, so we can really live up to the festival’s theme of Celebrating Together,” Mr Coure said.
“In addition to concerts, there will be the NSW Seniors Festival Expo right next door, which will feature over 60 different exhibitions, with giveaways, live entertainment and more. There will also be more than 85 activities hosted during the festival right across the state so there is something for all seniors to get involved in during the festival.”
Seniors living on the Central Coast now have more opportunities to get involved in the 2023 NSW Seniors Festival thanks to grant funding provided by the NSW Government.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch said three community organisations had received a share in $7,000 in funding to host events and programs during the festival, which is the largest celebration of seniors in the Southern hemisphere.
“These community-led activities and events are a great way for seniors and help keep them connected with their local community during the NSW Seniors Festival,” Mr Crouch said.
Community organisations include;
- Naughty Noodle Fun Haus, $5,000 for their ‘Silver Soiree Cabaret’.
- Better Hearing Australia, Central Coast, $1,000 for their ‘Movie Legends’ open captioned film screening.
- One Direct Connect Limited, $1,000 for ‘Let’s Do Yoga’.
Minister for Seniors Mark Coure said the three community organisations join more than 80 community organisations across the state that have received a share in $200,000 provided by the NSW Government to host activities during the festival.
“Each of these groups are helping make the festival even bigger, giving seniors more opportunities to get involved across the State,” Mr Coure said.
“Seniors are such an important part of our local communities and I am proud to see so many organisations want to help celebrate them.”
The activities hosted by the community groups will take place during the NSW Seniors Festival, which is scheduled to run from 1-12 February 2023.
Each of the 85 activities are to provide seniors an opportunity to get involved during the festival and connect them with their local community, no matter their background or abilities.
The concerts where Seniors set to Celebrate in February! will be held on 2 and 3 February at 11am and 2.45pm at Aware Super Theatre, ICC Sydney. For more information on the NSW Seniors Festival, visit https://www.nsw.gov.au/seniors-festival.
