THERE aren’t too many advantages in passing the 60 milestone and getting your Seniors Card, but one of them is that October is Seniors Festival time in Melbourne with literally hundreds of special activities and events, most of which are free to holders of said card.
The complete program is available online at http://www.seniorsonline.vic.gov.au/.
For jazz lovers an item of particular interest is the Festival After Dark concert on Thursday 10 October featuring the well-loved New Melbourne Jazz Band at Melbourne Town Hall. The Victorian Jazz Archive is co-sponsoring this event which runs from 7.00pm to 9.30pm.
Entry is free which means that booking will be even more essential than usual!
