A project in partnership with Age Better in Sheffield

We are a city of makers; we have invented, discovered and pioneered. We start new trends and change perspectives. Sparks seeks to embed active ageing into the mindset of Sheffield so when it comes to planning events, leisure activities and programming, everyone’s needs, abilities and dreams are considered. We aim to engage people over 50 in curating and producing a local and city wide programme of events from club nights to touring theatre productions; to create a central voice that informs our large city festivals and events how to celebrate and engage our older population. 

We want to find out what events are already happening in our city, what makes you attend things and what kind of activities and events are currently missing.  Please help us out by filling in the survey linked below. It will take around ten minutes and you can also enter into a prize draw to win £15 of book vouchers!

The information you give us will help us create a programme of arts, cultural and entertainment events and activities for people over 50 – from gigs to gardening and film to fashion—we want to know what makes you tick, and what puts you off going out.
