Welcome - this year we are bringing the Festival straight to your home through online performances, zoom recorded interviews and story-telling.
This important Victorian Government initiative celebrates older Victorians and the valuable contribution they make to our community.
Back for its 38th year, the Victorian Seniors Festival provides an opportunity for older Victorians to enjoy especially curated content that they can watch and listen to.
From May through to October 2020 we will post weekly video performances and interviews. From July through October we will post monthly radio entertainment.
This year we welcome Tristan Meecham and Bec Reid as our video hosts. Tristan and Bec are the dynamic duo All the Queens Men who the Festival has worked with on The Coming Back Out Ball and the LGBTI Dance Clubs.
With physical distancing rules in place, Bec and Tristan meet and host our video performers from the comfort of their own homes using technology in ways the Festival never knew were possible. Our radio content is also recorded separately and put together by our radio producers to adhere to physical distancing restrictions.
We've had a lot of fun creating and reimagining the Festival for you. We hope you enjoy it and sing along! Leave a comment on our website or through social media and get in the groove!
