We had planned a fantastic live 2021 Frankston Seniors Festival, yet COVID-19 has thwarted our plans so instead we’ve come up with a few events that we hope bring you some joy. 

We look forward to bringing you a vibrant, in person festival in 2022.

It’s our shout!  Free Frankston Seniors Festival Coffee

To celebrate Frankston Seniors Festival and to recognise the valuable role seniors play in our community, the Positive Ageing Team are ‘shouting’ coffees from Monday 18th through to Friday 22nd October!

Pop into one of our five favourite cafes and simply mention Frankston Seniors Festival for a free coffee in any style you want! This is a chance to meet up with a friend, take a stroll, and enjoy each other’s company as well as great coffee.

There will be 30 free coffees available per day per cafe, it’s ‘first in, best dressed’. So if you miss out on the first day, try again another day.

 4 October & 11 October – Tango Dance Workshops at Home (Online)

Always wanted to learn to Tango? Join us from the comfort of home for an introduction to Tango workshop presented online by Rina & Nadim of Tango Esencia Studios.
The class will mainly focus on an introduction to Tango, a short sequence that you can practice at home with a family member.
However, we are mindful that there may not necessarily be a partner to dance with at home during this time, so we will include exercises and steps that a single dancer can practice and enjoy at home too.

Time: 6.30-7.25pm

Cost: Pay what you can afford!

$0 – Freebie Please

$14 – Let’s dance (solo), two classes

$20 – Get the Tango party started (household), two classes

$40 – Household of Tango + BONUS virtual hug from the Frankston Arts Centre
