Tipperary Cultural Companions
Cultural Companions is an Age and Opportunity Initiative designed to link older people interested in arts and culture through a network so that they can attend events together as a group.
Events include Concerts, Films, Theatre, Plays, Musicals, Historical Talks and Exhibitions.
A new social network for Tipperary’s Older Citizens interested in meeting new people, arts, culture and volunteering: Many of us would probably go to a lot more plays, films, shows, concerts, exhibitions, or other events if we had someone to go with. There is a thriving social and arts scene out there to be enjoyed if only we had someone with the knowhow, the transport or the shared interest to get us going. That is where cultural companions comes in.
Tipperary Cultural Companions aims to provide increased opportunities for older people to engage with Ireland’s vibrant arts and cultural scene.
How it works:
• All members receive a calendar of events every two months
• Members select an event that they would like to attend, independently book and pay for the event
• The members meet up at an allocated time prior to each event and attend together, usually with a social get together built in
• A meet and greet person will be there at each event to welcome members
