On 14 December 1990 the United Nations General Assembly declared 1st October to be the International
Day of Older Persons. This day is a special one for older people and senior citizens around the world and
the theme for 2018’s celebration is ‘Celebrating Older Human Rights Champions’. Growing older does
not diminish a person’s inherent dignity and fundamental rights.
To mark the occasion Waterside Theatre in partnership with International School for Peace Studies is
hosting an afternoon movie and tea for over 60s from across the city. Come and meet friends, new and
old, and help us celebrate this special day.
