My Music, My Memories And Me!

This event has passed

Group of older people drinking coffee and talking

From The Beatles to Bowie and Beyond! Bristol Older People’s Forum (BOPF) are working with the Bristol Beacon on a new and exciting music project.

If you are over the age of fifty, come and join us and share memories about a favourite album track or single. We want you to talk about where and when you bought it, or first heard it, and what it means to you. Each participant will have a chance to introduce their choice and share it with the group. We will also play and watch the tracks via YouTube.

It might be Rock, Punk, Reggae, Rap, Classical, Folk, Jazz, Easy Listening or Country. Whatever it is, it’s time to celebrate music and tell your story!

Presented by Bristol Beacon and Bristol Older People’s Forum

Age guidance: For people over the age of 50.

Start time: 14:00 (90 mins)
