Seniors Festival at the Crows Nest Centre – Elvis in Hawaii, coffee with a cop and more

30 January 2023

NSW Seniors Festival kicks off on Wednesday and it’s a hive of activity at the Crows Nest Centre.

One of the festival highlights will be an appearance by Absolutely Elvis, belting out some of the King’s most popular hits.

Then there’s Coffee with a Cop, an opportunity to meet the local constabulary and enjoy the music of the NSW Police Band.

You can also try some of our regular activities including Feldenkrais (followed by scones and a cuppa), knit and natter, bingo and trivia, and fun ‘n games.

To ensure we are COVID safe, numbers are strictly limited and bookings are required for most activities. Call 9439 5122 or email to reserve your place.
