Last published on 12 Dec 2018 in Media releases / Archive

Marina Prior, Casey Donovan and Adam Brand will lead the line-up for the highly anticipated Premier's Gala Concerts during next year's NSW Seniors Festival.

Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies urged seniors to get in quick to secure free tickets for the Concerts, a highlight of the Festival, which are available through Ticketek from midday today.

"The NSW Government hosts the Premier's Gala Concerts each year to thank seniors for their contributions to our communities," Mrs Davies said.

"These concerts are hugely popular among our seniors for good reason. They provide a great opportunity for seniors to enjoy marvelous musical and variety acts from some of Australia's best performers, have fun and meet new friends."

More than 30,000 older people are expected to attend the Premier's Gala Concerts and Expo being held at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour during the Festival next February.

Mrs Davies said the NSW Seniors Festival Expo will include more than 50 interactive exhibitors and a comedy show, plus hundreds of locally run events held across NSW during the Festival.

"The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is proud to fund this year's Festival, which will include a range of activities, concerts and events right across the State," Mrs Davies added.

"NSW Seniors Festival is the largest festival for seniors in the southern hemisphere and is expected to reach up to 500,000 people throughout NSW next year."

The Premier's Gala Concerts are being held on Thursday 14 February and Friday 15 February 2019, and seniors can obtain their free tickets via Ticketek online at www.ticketek.com.au or by phone on 1300 130 613.

NSW Seniors Festival will run from 13-24 February 2019. For more information about events and activities happening during the Festival, please visit www.seniorsfestival.nsw.gov.au.
