GrandFest, a one day mini festival that celebrates the heritage skills of talented older people

GrandFest, a one day mini festival that celebrates the heritage skills of talented older people and presented by charity, Royal Voluntary Service, returns to East London again this year..

Now in its’ third year, GrandFest, is expected to be even bigger and better than ever this summer. On Sunday 18th June, the one day festival will unfold at various restaurants, pubs and shops around Spitalfields, with a series of masterclasses – from crochet to lacemaking and bread making to woodturning – hosted by our GrandMakers, all of whom are over 70.

The masterclasses will be held at different times throughout the day at venues including Geffrye Museum, Anthropologie, English Restaurant, The Ten Bells, Blixen, AGA London and Hanbury Hall, and will hopefully inspire the younger generation to discover and learn new skills.

There will also be a variety of performers on the GrandFest stage in Bishops Square, Spitalfields, including the New Covent Garden Dance Orchestra and singing trio, Bella Donna Brigade, to entertain festival goers.

To read more about GrandFest please visit https://grandfest.royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk - masterclasses will be available to book from April.

The Royal Voluntary Service is one of the biggest volunteer organisations in the UK, which supports over 100,000 older people each month. Through its army of 35,000 volunteers, the charity runs services such as Good Neighbours (companionship), Meals-on-Wheels and Books-on-Wheels that alleviate loneliness and help older people. Royal Voluntary Service also provides practical support for older people who have been in hospital through its On Ward support and Home from Hospital services and via its network of retail shops and cafes.
