Bill Oddie to launch Celebrating Age Festival 2011 at Bristol M Shed museum

The 2011 Bristol Celebrating Age Festival begins on Tuesday 30 August and runs until Saturday 03 September; the festival consists of a series of events, workshops and performances, designed to bring together people of all ages and generations.

The festival will be launched by the legendary TV celebrity Bill Oddie who will be visiting Bristolís newest museum, M Shed, on Tuesday 30 August. Bill Oddie first started performing whilst at Cambridge University, where he first appeared with fellow future Goodie Tim Brooke Taylor in several Cambridge Footlights productions. He also began to write scripts for BBC TVís That Was The Week That Was. He gained an MA in English Literature at the university but his experiences with the Footlights and scriptwriting persuaded him to drop his plans to become an English Teacher, or the warden of a bird observatory, and instead go into show business.

Bill is well known for his appearances on a variety of wildlife shows and he has also made numerous guest appearances on shows such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks; Grumpy Old New Year and 8 Out Of 10 Cats. The launch event takes place from 1PM until 4PM; admission is free but tickets must be pre-booked by contacting Claire on 0117 927 6614 or emailing

The week continues with a very full programme including dance, golf, cookery, photography, woodwork, drumming, yoga, walking, indoor bowls, singing, language lessons, writing, flower arranging, lace making and zumba. There are events taking place at various locations around Bristol.

The Celebrating Age Festival will reach its climax on Saturday 03 September with a day of activities taking place at the Colston Hall; the day will be opened at 10AM by Bristolís Lord Mayor, Councillor Geoff Gallop, and will feature a performance from the Bristol Male Voice Choir; a performance and workshop from the African Sambistas; an art display; debating; a fashion show and two performances by all-singing, all-dancing festival headliners The Regular Joes.
