Established in 2014, the Elixir Festival is a unique event celebrating lifelong creativity and the contribution of older artists. It was set up to recognise the contribution that older artists make and challenge assumptions about what older people can and want to do.

In its inaugural year, the festival provided 2,500 people with the opportunity to experience older people dancing live and saw 500 older performers grace its stages.

In its return to Sadler’s Wells, Elixir Festival 2017 contains KnowBody II, Elixir Extracts, Elixir Workshops, The Elixir Conference and 7 Dialogues. The vibrant and varied programme of performances, workshops and a conference represents the breadth of opportunities available to prove that it’s never too late to start dancing.
