Golden Years Festival At Birtley House

A day of workshops, performances and demonstrations in dance, music and craft, designed specifically for older adults, took place in our beautiful parkland. Organised by Surrey Arts, this event attracted 130 attendees from Care Homes and Day Centres across Surrey, in addition to the Mayor of Waverley, Cllr Liz Wheatley.

The finale of the day centred around a grass labyrinth which had been marked out by Surrey Arts several weeks ago, and then tended by our gardening team. A dance had been specially commissioned for the day and this took place in the labyrinth. Several of the attendees, including the Mayor, then proceeded around the mown path, following dance movements they had learnt earlier in the day.

A Labyrinth is a single winding path leading you to the centre and returning to the beginning again. Our temporary labryrinth was surprisingly long, 256 paces, with walls formed of finger knitting and crochet.
