A spokesperson for Older People North West said the event was a direct result of the success experienced during Derry’s year of culture in 2013.

“This event is part of our timetable of cultural and arts events specifically for older people to allow them to remain involved in cultural activities following on from the UK City of Culture 2013. All those over the age of 60 are welcome to attend and enjoy this free event”.

The event will take place from 2pm-3:30pm and refreshments will be provided.
