"I am not the same person who joined The Elders on that very first day. Nothing else I do in my activities or, indeed, have done in the past has brought my new found confidence I am now experiencing. I want to shout from the rooftops, ‘look out world, here I come.' And if I can do it, so can you."
The Elders is for everyone aged 60+ who wants to feel connected to new people and ideas, develop performance skills and make boundary-pushing theatre that challenges negative stereotypes of ageing.
The Royal Exchange Elders programme is proudly associated with Age Friendly Manchester.
On the 1 October, Royal Exchange Theatre held their first ELDERS EXCHANGE DAY. We partnered with creative organisations from all over Greater Manchester, joining the celebration: National Older People's Day in association with Age of Creativity. Have a look at what we got up to below!
