The Silver Social is an exciting programme of daytime arts events in the heart of Norfolk, promoting engagement and participation among older residents in rural communities. 

Managed by Breckland Council and with funding from the National Lottery Arts Council strategic touring fund, Silver Social brings 'something a little different' to daily life in rural Breckland - in the form of creative workshops and live performances. Events are held in familiar venues in the market towns - Dereham, Swaffham, Thetford, Attleborough, Watton and target villages: Ashill, Necton, Shipdham, Mattishall and Harling. The Project works with partners Creative Arts EastNorfolk Library ServicesNorfolk Museums Service, Breckland Older People's Forum and Norfolk County Council Public Health.

If you want to meet new people within your community, watch or participate in a range of different activities or you know a friend, neighbour or family member who might like to try something new, Silver Social offers high quality, accessible arts based activities within a friendly, familiar space.

There are also volunteering opportunities for those who want to contribute a little more to the Silver Social, supporting artists at sessions and helping to spread the word of upcoming events. Contact us
