In celebration of Seniors’ week The City Library held some very special events and morning teas that were open to everyone to enjoy.
On Wednesday 6th November, Andrea Gibbs from Barefaced Stories ran a workshop on Storytelling, giving the participants tips and advice on constructing stories with humour and confidence. The workshop participants were then invited to put there new found skills into practice with a performance.
The following Wednesday (13th November) The City Library was treated to guest performers ‘Diamond Cut’, who took our participants on a journey through the music and lyrics of Neil Diamond. The duo had everyone dancing in their seats and we are sure we heard some participants singing along.
On Thursday the 14th of November The City Library took our participants on ‘A Spiritual Journey’ with Edwina (Clairvoyant Medium), Rosie (Tarot reader) and Mark (Medium). Each participant was able to have a personal reading with one of our special guests, which made for a very informative and surprising morning.
