Things to do for Older People in Manchester

Arts and culture, local history groups and fitness activities are among the pick of things for older people to do in Manchester. Part of the Culture Champions initiative, many of these events are designed by older people, for older people. All the activities are a great way to socialise, improve wellbeing and maintain physical health.

Manchester Museum is committed to making the city region a better place to age well. The Bridgewater Hall Singers meet most Wednesdays and are often looking for new members. A chance to perform, link to other choirs or just sing for pleasure. The Elders Company at the Royal Exchange Theatre have a range of brilliant ways to become involved and Manchester Camerata hold weekly Music Cafes for those with dementia and their carers.

Closer to home, libraries are also a great place to meet new people and learn something new. There are knitting clubs, coffee mornings and local history sessions. Take a look at what your local centre has to offer here.
