What's on for Ipswich Seniors?  

IPSWICH CITY COUNCIL SENIORS' CONCERT             

The Ipswich Seniors' Concert initiative has been developed as a community based program that engages the senior community in the further development of Ipswich Community Life.  The introduction of this program was developed by Council in 2002 in consultation with the seniors' community of Ipswich.

Ipswich City Council stages annual seniors' concerts to foster the unique sense of community that defines Ipswich for both residents and visitors.  Senior residents of Ipswich are valued and active in informing and participating in local decision making processes that shape and improve the quality of life in Ipswich.

Seniors' concerts provide light hearted quality entertainment for seniors citizens and those with disabilities.  The concerts are scripted, directed, choreographed and performed by seniors who also design and create the sets and the costumes.  The program content is varied with a balance of music, comedy and visual entertainment and may include audience participation and interaction.  The concerts run for approximately 70 minutes and are staged during the Ipswich Festival Week as a featured seniors' festival event.

 

On Tuesday 21 April 2015, Council will stage 'A Brown Slouch Hat' in the Ipswich Civic Centre. 

All tickets are $8.00. Tickets available soon
