Welcome to the Silver Social Project

 An ambitious programme of daytime events aimed at older people, in community venues across Breckland, Norfolk. The Project uses a range of art forms, delivered by professional practitioners, to promote participation and independent living in our communities. 

Silver Social holds events in libraries, village halls, museums and other familiar community spaces, in target areas across Breckland: Dereham, Swaffham, Attleborough, Watton, Thetford, Ashill, Mattishall, Necton, Shipdham and Harling.

Everyone is welcome to come along and try a new activity at a workshop or watch a high quality performance for only £5 a ticket. Refreshments are complimentary and free local transport is available to all our events. Find a Silver Social event near you.

The programme is managed by Breckland Council, with strategic touring funding from Arts Council England. For more details about the programme click here.
