Forbes Shire Council “Give It A Go” Seniors Festival for 2021 has been in full swing this week. The festival went ahead with COVIDSafe protocols in place to ensure everyone’s safety.
The week-long celebration opened up a raft of activities and entertainment for the young at heart to try.
“Once again we are thrilled to be able to offer this incredible range of activities to the seniors of Forbes,” Cr Phyllis Miller OAM, Mayor of Forbes, said.
“Especially after 2020, it is great to be able to bring this Festival back to the people.”
Events began on Tuesday 13 April with the Croquet at Halpins Flat followed on by Tai Chi at the Forbes Youth and Community Centre.
The week continued with workshops at the Men’s Shed, dancing at the Forbes Youth and Community Centre and concludes with the very popular Seniors Vari-ety Concert at Town Hall on Sunday April 18 (10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm).
Entry is a gold coin donation, and all proceeds will be donated to the Forbes Red Cross NSW Branch.
The concert will feature some amazing entertainment from local performers including Maz Rees, Martin Rein, Kimberley Ryan, Laurie Norris, Joseph Pereira and Forbes Seniors Singers.
Due to the popularity of the concert, there will be two sessions; morning and afternoon, each catered for accordingly.
