Growing Bolder:

FREE Groups for Bristol residents over 55.

Our creative workshops in Bristol provide a warm, positive environment to look at some of the challenges of ageing, using writing, poetry and other creative arts.  The group welcomes anyone over 50 and we are funded by Bristol Ageing Better.

Recently, we have run Journaling for Beginners and a Group for Carers and we hope to hold a Collaboratory, a celebration event showcasing innovative projects with and for older people.

Led by experienced family counsellors, Mary Everett and Barbara Bloomfield, we create, we write, we act, we think, we share and we socialise. This is our fourth year running Growing Bolder and these popular events fill up fast!

Barbara is a counsellor and author who taught creative writing at Bath Spa University for six years and Mary has been working as a psychotherapist and in the NHS for many years. Between us we have half a century of experience of working with individuals, couples and families.

Venue: Bishopston, Bristol
