Are you over 50 and at a loose end? Don’t know what to do next in your life? Well, the Over 50s Show could help you find your way.
Billed as the biggest show for active Over 50s, The 50+ Show hits town again for the seventh time with a three day event taking place in July at the Olympia’s Grand Hall in London.Following last year’s successful event, the organisers are determined to make this year’s show even better and expect 12,000 people to attend. As an added attraction this year, celebrities have been drafted-in to help the full and varied programme go with a swing.
On the main stage area during day two consumer champion, Esther Rantzen CBE,will be introducing her new charity The Silver Line. On the Saturday,day three, it will be the turn of journalist and TV broadcaster Angela Rippon, who will be giving ‘an audience’ and host a question and answer session.Opening the show on day one, Thursday, will be comedian and actor, Brian Conley, who will entertain with his particular style of stand-up comedy.
The main focus of the Show is ‘Making the Most of Life : Positively, Actively and Creatively.’
Sponsored by the Prudential, the show will have something of interest for most people covering a range of practical skills, including craft work, cookery, gardening, fashion, and keeping fit. Making the most of ourselves is what it will all be about as you visit the many exhibitor stands.
The 50+ show will be joined by the 50+ Travel and the Health Tourism Shows to provide a packed programme of activities including:
- fitness sessions and a climbing wall
- free health checks
- cookery demonstrations – led by Beer Chef Richard Fox
- wellness-based travel
