Leeds Museums hosted the main event this year, with stallholders, activity sessions and demonstrations. at the Leeds Arena in the City Museum on 9th October 2012.
There were opportunities to have a go at activities, pick up information about local groups and services, speak to staff and soak up the atmosphere. There was also a wide range of things to keep visitors active and engaged – including arts, lifelong learning, cookery, dance, and readers groups. The event celebrated active ageing in Leeds, but also offered support for those who may experience isolation in older age by signposting places to go, and people to contact.
