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.
