The film has been made by TDC Community Development Workers and consists of interviews with people aged over 50 who are making a positive difference in their communities across Brighton & Hove.

TDC project manager Lyndsay Macadam says ”The theme of this year’s Older People’s Festival is about recognising  the talents and contributions of older people and we thought it would be fantastic to capture on film some of the older people in our communities talking about the work they do and to ask them why they do it.”   

After the film, attendees will be treated to tea and cake and will be invited to join in a discussion with the Mayor of Brighton & Hove to talk about the contribution older people make to the city. The event is open to all over 50s, entry is free and prior booking is requested by phone or by email.
