Highlights will include traditional tea dancing, movie screenings, and café sessions, featuring poetry, theatre, music and comedy.

The event will finish with The Big Sing concert, with the St Agnes Choral Society performing songs from a host of musicals.

Speaking about the upcoming event, Belfast Waterfront Arts and Community Coordinator, Mark De Conink, said: "We're delighted to be presenting Northern Ireland's first ever Arts Festival for Older People.

"Inclusivity, innovation and choice are bywords of our arts and community programmes at the Waterfront and this fantastic two day festival promises to deliver on all of these fronts.

"With such a wide variety of events, performances and workshops taking place this really is a great opportunity for people to join together, get creative and be inspired."

Imagine Arts Festival for Older People runs from 8-9 June 2013.
