Welcome 

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 online through www.seniorsonline.vic.gov.au/festival 

From May through October 2020 there will be weekly uploads of performances to watch, and from July through October there will be monthly radio content to listen to.

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, and we hope you enjoy it - and sing along! Leave a comment on our website or through social media, and get in the groove!
