Royal Voluntary Service has unveiled its line-up for GrandFest 2016, a one-day festival to celebrate older people and their heritage skills, at a launch event at London’s Geffrye Museum.

Organised by TVC, the launch event included a special visit from HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, President of Royal Voluntary Service, who met GrandMakers, all aged 70+ years, and got a sneak preview of the skills they plan to showcase at this year’s festival on 5 June. Now in its second year, GrandFest will see 12 GrandMakers hosting masterclasses around breadmaking, crochet and weaving. Other celebrities attending the media launch included Royal Voluntary Service Ambassador and ‘Hyacinth Bucket’ actress Patricia Routledge and Wayne Sleep.

Royal Voluntary Service is one of the biggest volunteer organisations in GB, supporting more than 100,000 older people each month. More details of this year’s GrandFest event can be found here.
