Seniors Festival 2021

Seniors Festival fun from your loungeroom

A virtual disco and karaoke night was just one of the fantastic events on offer when the Port Phillip Seniors Festival kicked off on 1 October.

The annual event moved online for 2021, so our community could enjoy all the fun from their loungerooms from 1 to 17 October.

The online program included a singing or walking trail around Elwood, documentaries, webinars, virtual tours, art exhibitions and concerts with an amazing array of culture and talent.

Port Phillip Writes - Seniors Festival Writing Awards

In October 2021 the Port Phillip Writes awards ceremony was held online.

Now in its 17th year, this enjoyable session of literature included the announcement of the Judges Awards. Special guests Megan Jones, Roby Arthur and Cr Louise Crawford read sections of writers’ entries.
