Boroondara Seniors Festival 

A free online gala concert

Premiering at 3pm, Thursday 15 October

In a real treat of hilarity and joy, we’re celebrating our wonderful seniors with the first ever online Boroondara Seniors Festival.

Join us as our event host, renowned comedian Frank Woodley (previously of Lano and Woodley), leads us through an hour of musical treats and community focused shenanigans.

Frank Woodley

Laugh out loud as Frank Woodley discovers how vibrant the Boroondara community truly is and celebrates our seniors in this first ever online Boroondara Seniors Festival.

Vika & Linda

The treats continue with the revered Melbourne sister duo, Vika & Linda, who have been melting our hearts with their rich vocal harmonies for the last 35 years. Having just achieved #1 status on the Aria charts with their recent anthology, we’re thrilled to have Vika & Linda serenade us from their lounge room.

Continental Drift Quartet
