Sunday 6th October 2019
A day of free events and activities up and down the UK
Changing the story of loneliness in older people
Days to go
Silver Sunday is an annual day of fun and free activities for older people across the UK. Led by The Sir Simon Milton Foundation, it celebrates the value and knowledge they contribute to our communities while combating loneliness and isolation. Everyone can get involved, whether that’s organising an event, spreading the word, or simply attending an activity. The next Silver Sunday is on 6 October 2019.
Our annual Tea Dance hosted by the Sir Simon Milton Foundation, has become known for its winning combination of entertainment, live music, afternoon tea and great company.
Held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, the event attracts over 1,000 Westminster residents.
This event is a great opportunity for people who may not get out of the house very often. If you have a friend or neighbour that might like to join in, spread the word or offer to accompany them.

What they say…
This is a special day for older people to get involved in community events and activities to bring back some of the traditional community spirit. It’s also a small thank you for your contribution to society.Joanna Lumley, OBE FRGS
lt is so important that older people feel included in London’s communities. That is why I support Silver Sunday and hope that you all have a wonderful time celebrating the valuable contributions that older people make. These contributions span not just London but up and down the UK. In a city as large as London there is no need for older people to ever feel lonely or isolated but sadly some do. As Mayor, I want to make sure that everyone is engaged and active in their community – young or older.Sadiq Khan
