Luminate: Scotland's creative ageing festival
celebrating creativity as we age

Welcome to Luminate

Luminate, Scotland's creative ageing festival, is held from 1st to 31st October across Scotland each year.  The festival brings together older people and those from across the generations to celebrate our creativity as we age, share stories of ageing and explore what growing older means to all of us. Each year, there are activities all over Scotland - from art workshops and dance classes to music performances and authors' events - and you will find Luminate in theatres, galleries, community halls, care homes and lunch clubs, as well as events online that take us to audiences everywhere.

Luminate 2016

The 2016 programme features hundreds of creative events and activities, reaching people of all ages and different communities nationwide. 

The festival extends the length and breadth of Scotland - from the Scottish Borders up to Shetland. Browse our events calendar to find activities taking place near you throughout October.
