Seniors Festival Banner

In 2020 Woollahra Council will stage Find Your Spark! for seniors in the Woollahra community, that coincides with NSW Seniors Festival, the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere. The annual festival promotes inclusive communities and provides an opportunity for seniors to try new things, contribute and remain active and engaged in their local communities.

Find Your Spark! consists of three mornings of free workshops to try something new, learn something different and to meet other community members. Creative Spark, Active Spark and Green Spark will each run from 10.00am – 12.00pm with morning tea provided and a chance to explore Woollahra Libraries' Spark Van; a mobile pop up library where you can engage with some of the latest technologies.

Bookings are essential.

Browse through the listings below or pick up a brochure from a Woollahra Library or Customer Service to see the range of suitable events and activities we have available through February.

Transport will be provided in partnership with Holdsworth Community Centre on request.
