Kensington and Chelsea residents aged 65 and over are invited to take part in a huge programme of free activities and events to celebrate their contribution to community life.

So why not take the time to relax and watch a match at Lord’s Cricket Ground, join the Chelsea Pensioners for a Tea Dance at the Royal Hospital,  plant up a pot for your windowsill or balcony at Sybil Thorndike House or visit 18 Stafford Terrace (the preserved Victorian family home of Punch cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne). You can also experience glitz and glamour at a Best of Broadway concert at the Royal Albert Hall, watch a film screening of ‘Lady in the Van’ or get creative at the Community Kitchen Gardeners’ workshop at The Second Half Centre – these are just some of the events that you can choose from and a lot of the activities are also run throughout the year.

You also don’t have to go on your own – you can invite a friend, family member or carer to join you.

The programme launches in Kensington and Chelsea on Monday 26 September and more information can be found on the Silver Sunday website. The 2016 brochure will be published in hard copy and on the website in early September with the full range of activities and booking information where necessary.
