Elders aren’t just older – they’re wiser. In a good society, older people are respected for their experience, for their knowledge and for everything they can teach us.
The Royal Exchange Elders Company 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.
"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 Company is currently at full capacity however if you would like to find out more then you can join us at Elders Monthly.
Elders Monthly sessions are open to anyone over 60 and are a taster workshop for those who wish to develop drama skills and find out more about the process of making theatre. If following a taster session, you are interested in becoming a full member of The Elders you will have the opportunity to apply for one of our termly programmes of workshops (subject to available places).
