Mills & Reeve supports over-60s Elders project at the Royal Exchange Theatre
Mills & Reeve has announced its support of the over-60s Elders project at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Greater Manchester. The Elders project — a pilot from which the Royal Exchange intends to develop a sustainable long-term initiative to engage older people in the performing arts — got under way this month with an initial series of nine workshops with company members.
The first free taster workshop received more than 150 requests to take part, resulting in the planned 20 places being extended to 80 with an additional list of those waiting in the wings.
The Elders project sets out to tackle social exclusion in the older residents of Manchester by providing opportunities to be more physically active, build new friendships and learn new skills.
The Company of Elders is also supported by the Madeline Mabey Trust.
