A FUN-FILLED festival in Yate is returning to the town soon. 

Yate Town Council is inviting residents to its annual Yate Ageing Better Festival, where they celebrate ageing better!

Taking place at Yate Shopping Centre on Wednesday, July 17 between 11am and 2pm, there will be many community groups offering social activities and volunteering in sport, music, health, arts, culture, heritage, DIY and much more.

This alongside a vibrant program of music performances, singing, games, free classes, and a festival favourite cream tea and ploughman’s lunch at the Pop Inn Cafe!

A town council spokesperson said: "If you’re thinking of making new friends, learning a new skill or hobby, or maybe rekindling old favourites - come along to find out what Yate and the surrounding areas have to offer, for people approaching and already enjoying their retirement.

"Brought to you by Yate Town Council, with support from our partners at Yate Shopping Centre and Active Lifestyle Centre Yate. 

"We look forward to seeing you at the festival, as we celebrate ageing better."
