Bealtaine is a month long celebration of being actively retired encouraging anyone over 55 to get out and to try new things.
The Duhallow Bealtaine Festival is organised and run by the SAOI Network and is supported by Age & Opportunity. The SAOI Network want to facilitate a more active social life for older people living in Duhallow who wish to broaden their horizons, become more active and get more involved in their own communities.
Bealtaine is a month long celebration of being actively retired encouraging anyone over 55 to get out and to try new things. This national initiative is devised by Age and Opportunity, who are a national organisation that encourages people to live their lives to the full and achieve their full potential. Bealtaine celebrates and showcases the talents and creativity of both first-time and professional older artists. It encourages older people to go out and try new things. The festival provides an excellent opportunity to communicate talents and traditions between generations.
We are currently accepting applications to be part of our 2019 Festival. Its open to all groups that are running events throughout the month of May that encourage actively ageing.
