Age Friendly Manchester Culture Champions

Within Manchester city centre there are lots of arts and cultural venues including the Football Museum, Museum of Science and Industry, Central Library and the Royal Exchange Theatre, to name a few. Most of these venues offer free admission and also offer free talks and tours on certain days whether you decide to visit on your own, with a friend or in a group.

Despite the fact that there is so much on offer sometimes older people find it difficult to access information about opportunities that are open to them. If you are a frequent visitor (over 50) to our cultural venues, or a resident involved in cultural activities and feel you are able to encourage and enthuse others to take advantage of what is on offer then you could be an Age Friendly Manchester Culture Champion.

The role of champion is:

to help shape Manchester Council’s Age Friendly Manchester Cultural Offer programme
to inform their local networks about cultural events in the city and encourage participation in these events.
to attend cultural celebration events
to co-design activities for older people with cultural organisations.
