Heydays

Heydays

Our theatre programme for people over 55

Heydays is our long-standing creative programme for over 55s, taking place on Wednesdays since 1990.

It is the largest and longest-running arts programme for older people in UK theatre. Around 300 older people attend each week to take part in everything from drama and dance to sculpture and creative writing, supported by a team of professional artists. Heydays is a vibrant, creative community where skills are developed and stories are shared.

Whether you have tons of experience in the arts or you would like to try something new, you are welcome to come along on a Wednesday (during our current programme) at 10am to meet our Friendly Face volunteer. You can take a look around to see if Heydays might be for you.

Alternatively give one of the team a call on 0113 213 7296 to discuss how you could get involved.
