Something for everyone at Redlands Coast Seniors Week celebrations


Redlands Coast seniors are in for a treat with a full and diverse program of activities and events on offer again for Seniors Week, this year set for 18 to 26 August.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said that Seniors Week was an opportunity to acknowledge the enormous contribution seniors made to our community.

“I am hugely impressed by the quality of the program put together to celebrate Seniors Week, the result of a truly collaborative community effort that Redland City Council was proud to support.

“I particularly thank Redlands District Committee on the Ageing’s (RDCOTA) Paul Barnes, for his dedication as Chairman of the Seniors Week Committee.

“From Latin dancing and musical theatre to information sessions and the popular Seniors Week Walk, there is something for everyone so I urge everyone to check out the program of events and start planning their week.

“This year’s free Seniors Week Variety Concert at Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) is sure to be a crowd pleaser with talent of all ages, including Here’s to Life, the Donald Simpson Centre Theatrical Group and Dunwich State School prep kids performing songs in language with Aunty Maree Goebel.

“Council is proud to supply this wonderful venue, RPAC – as well as our production staff – free of charge for this event,” Cr Williams said.

The variety concert will start at 10.30am, Tuesday 21 August. Although entry is free, due to high demand tickets must be pre-purchased through the RPAC box office in person or by phoning 3829 8131.
