Victorian Seniors Festival in Buloke 2022

Celebrating the 40th Victorian Seniors Festival in Buloke!

The Victorian Seniors Festival celebrates ageing positively throughout the month of October and recognises the important contribution older people make to our community. It’s run in partnership with the Victorian Seniors Festival and it’s an opportunity to celebrate people over 55 in our communities. The Victorian Seniors Festival theme for 2022 is Takin’ It Easy, which focuses on presenting accessible and comfortable spaces, both live and online, to ensure seniors feel relaxed to participate and ease back into events.

To celebrate the 40th Victorian Seniors Festival, we are proud to be hosting a free event on Tuesday 12 October. Seniors can join us at the Birchip Community Leisure Centre in Birchip from 10am for a performance by the fantastic by ME’N’ME Mates, followed by a free lunch.

ME’N’ME Mates are a folk/country acoustic trio based in South Australia showcasing Australia’s  unique songs, language and stories. Rediscovering old songs, language and yarns as well as writing, performing and recording new material on Australian themes has proved to be an enjoyable and ongoing adventure for the group. You can have a taste of some of their performance here:
