In May ‘Intergenerational’ is the theme for both the Age of Creativity Festival and Get Creative fortnight.
We are linking our Age or Creativity and Get Creative event with our Cocktails in Care Homes party theme: London Transport. Parties will be decorated with appropriately transport themed decor and have fun quizzes, games and story-telling.
Our team at Magic Me are committed to helping the environment so we didn’t want cycling to be missed out from the transport story. For our Get Creative event we are inviting people of all ages to help make decorations to go onto a bike and bike trailer that will then deliver one of our theme boxes to a Cocktails In Care Homes Party.
The drop in event is on Wednesday 1st May and starts at 10.30am and finishes around 3pm with the bike leaving at 3.30pm.
Making activities will be in our ground floor meeting room at 18 Victoria Park Square, London E2 9PF and decorating activities in the forecourt.
We have limited space so please let us know you’d like to come using this link (or telephone Sarah on 020 3222 6064). This event is suitable for people of all ages but we do ask that children be accompanied by an adult.
The ‘What if creativity lasted a lifetime conference?’, on 2nd May, is also as part of the festival and our director, Susan Langford will be speaking on the topic ‘What if you could be an emerging artist at any age?’. Details of the conference here.
Age of Creativity is a network of more than 1000 professionals who all believe that creativity and culture supports older people to experience better health, well being and quality of life. The Age of Creativity Festival celebrates the extraordinary range of Age Friendly creative and cultural work taking place across England and reaches out into our community to help more people get involved.
The festival exists to celebrate older people as audiences, participants, volunteers and artists. The festival aims to showcase an eclectic mix of tastes, styles, art-forms and interests that are Age Friendly, and provide the consideration and support that enables older people to produce, create and enjoy creativity up and down the country.

Get Creative Festival shines a light on all the great cultural activity that takes place on a regular basis in local communities and encourages people to try their hand at something new and creative. This huge annual celebration of creativity aims to give everyone the chance to get actively involved in a creative event in their local area.
