Over 55s

Our programme of work for older people is changing. We want to create a welcoming and vibrant community within the heart of the city for people to meet, feel comfortable and continue their lifelong learning.

Centre Stage

Centre Stage for older adults provides opportunities to take part in something from drama and dance to singing and creative writing to tea and chat mornings, supported by our Creative team and visiting artists. We are developing a creative community where skills are developed and stories are shared among like-minded people.

Whether you have lots of experience in the arts or you would like to try something new, you are welcome to take part.

We look forward to welcoming new members into the building from September 2021.

To join in, please complete our application form and a member of our Creative team will be in touch.


Our Limelight group will no longer be delivered when we return to the building. Centre Stage will instead host the opportunities our club for theatre enthusiasts over the age of 55 provided.

Centre Stage will allow opportunities for more people to take part and allow us to provide more experiences and opportunities.

All existing Limelight members will be contacted by post and can join in any of our Centre Stage activities in place of their Limelight membership, until September 2022.
