The Great Get Together will return in 2019. Stay tuned for more details.

A weekend festival of performances, workshops, talks, films, crafts and debates to bring communities together and celebrate all that unites us.

The Great Get Together – part of Storyhouse’s Celebrating Age Programme

A celebration with older people at its heart.

The Great Get Together is inspired by Jo Cox’s belief that: “We have far more in common than that which divides us” and aims to raise awareness about how communities can work together to help end loneliness. Join us for a packed weekend of activities, talks, workshops, shows and special cinema screenings.

Co-curated with Brightlife: part of the National Lottery funded Ageing Better programme set up by the Big Lottery Fund to help combat social isolation and loneliness in Cheshire West and Chester.

In partnership with Brightlife
