Country singer James Blundell will be the main attraction when the Wangaratta Seniors’ Festival is held in October.
He will play a free concert at the Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday, October 18 and Commissioner for Senior Victorians Gerard Mansour will speak at an event on November 1.
Mayor Ken Clarke said workshops hosted by community groups such as Pangerang Community House would open up the eyes of seniors to what was on offer in the city.
“Pangerang Community House, the University of the Third Age and Wangaratta Lawn Tennis Club are some of the groups that have really taken the opportunity to showcase their activities,” he said.
“It’s a real coup for Wangaratta to have the Commissioner for Senior Victorians Gerard Mansour visiting.”
