Attended by The Mayor

This week saw the launch of this year’s Older People’s Festival, at the Hop50+. Brighton and Hove’s Mayor, Councillor Dee Simson, opened the festival to an audience of more than 200 people, who had attended to enjoy a programme of singing and dancing and a glass or two of bubbly. The Brighton Beach Boys and Sing for Better Health entertained people who had come from all across the city on a beautifully sunny day.
