Celebrating Age Festival “Brilliant in Bristol” calls for art entries

It’s time to get creative – Bristol’s Celebrating Age Festival which starts this summer is calling for entries for its annual art competition.

This year’s festival which runs from June 24 to July 6 will be themed Brilliant in Bristol: Many Communities, Many Cultures, One City, to reflect the talent and the diversity of older people across the city.

Aimed at the over 55s – events will be taking place across Bristol during the two weeks as well as a main Celebration Event at City Hall on Saturday June 29 – which will feature a range of entertainment as well as craft and information stalls.

Celebrating Age Committee Chair Judith Brown says they are looking for art entries ‘in any medium’.

She says: “If you live in Bristol and are over 55 we look forward to receiving your entries – which should reflect the theme of the Celebrating Age festival.

“Entries should be brought to central library and a ballot box will be available there so people can vote for their favourite. Prizes will be awarded at our celebration event on June 29.”

All entries should be submitted to central library by June 14. For more information about the competition call Claire Kennelly on 0117 927 6614 or email claire@rem-events.com
