Thursday 17th December 2020 19.00-20.30

On Thursday 17th December 7.00-8.30 pm, the Irish Gerontological Society will host a special and very different seasonal online event for our members and their families.  It is a “gift” to IGS members for supporting us during the year and an acknowledgement of the unusual times we are living and working in.

It is intended to be a night “OUT” but “AT HOME” with friends, family or your “social bubble”  - who might even be connectable virtually through this event, if that makes sense! All you will need to do is bring your own mince pies, mulled wine, Christmas jumper and Christmas spirit, and sit back and …..more to follow soon.

For now, we can tell you that our festive programme will include a book launch, prose and poetry readings, musical recitals, celebrity chef and special guest appearances.

In the meantime, we would like to invite any of those in members' families under 16 to send us a photograph of their seasonal artwork.  For example a drawing, painting, colouring-in or collage.  The artwork should include the artist's name, age and the title of their picture.

The best entries will be included on a gallery on the event webpage and some may even be chosen to feature in email and online promotion of the event.

Closing date for receipt of pictures to is Monday,  30th November 2020.
