Organise an Event

Thank you for thinking of running a Silver Sunday event. The events are incredibly special, just like the people who run them, help out or join as guests. Your event can be big or small and of any theme or activity you choose. Hosting a Silver Sunday activity can be very simple. Just follow these four steps:

1. Decide on an event: Dance lessons, theatre trip, museum tour, or a coffee morning – your Silver Sunday event can be anything, anywhere, just so long as it brings older residents together. So get creative. Why not team up with a local school or college to organise an inter-generational activity, such as computer classes? Be inspired by our Gallery, Video Stories and Ideas pages and download our Event Toolkit.

2. Find a venue: The world is your oyster! But if you’re struggling to find an appropriate location try contacting your local community centre, library or council

3. Submit your event: Large or small, near or far, we want to hear about your Silver Sunday plans. Submit your event here and we’ll promote it on our website and social media.

4. Get the word out: Whether it’s putting up posters, contacting your local council, promoting it online, or good old fashioned word of mouth, spreading the message will help make your Silver Sunday a success.
