Discover new interests

Our activities include a wide range of physical classes, dance, creative and performing arts, IT, languages, current affairs social groups and speakers, weekly trips, tea dances plus health and taster days.

Activities are provided from around 60 different sites that include our own centres as well as church halls, community centres, libraries, sheltered housing schemes and sports centres. We even provide free facilitated groups over the phone for people who can’t get out.

Some activities are specially designed to offer unpaid carers – people who look after friends or family at home – time off and fun for themselves. These include regular trips plus social and cultural events, as well as complementary therapy sessions.

How to take part

You just need to become a member of Open Age – it’s free. All our activities are either free or low cost – between £1 and £3 per hour on a pay-as-you-go basis, with no upfront or term fees. Lunch clubs, trips out and complementary therapies cost slightly more but still offer great value for money. Unless the programme says otherwise, just show up at an activity, complete a membership form and join in.

More about our classes

Most of our classes are run by independent professional tutors with qualifications and experience in the area of activity. Social and information groups are facilitated by our outreach staff or volunteers, who bring in speakers on topics of interest.

Open Age is also linked to a huge number of informal partnerships and we work with a variety of arts and cultural organisations to increase the breadth of what we offer – for example we are an ambassador to the Historic Royal Palaces.





Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Open Age is raising awareness of leaving a gift to charity in your will. Legacies are an important way to support Open Age, as they help us to plan so that we can be there in the future for older people who need us. As well as providing for your family, friends and other loved ones in your will, please do consider the possibility of leaving a gift to Open Age.
