Our Events

We always make sure to cater for diets and disabilities at our national events. There is a Bursary Fund to assist those who have difficulty affording the costs of attending. The fund is available to all members who have been in the Network for at least 3 months, and of course it’s entirely confidential.

The Growing Old Disgracefully Annual Gathering

The Annual Gathering is a 3-day event held in a different part of the country each year. We have outings, entertainment, workshops and of course the chance to renew friendships and make new ones. We also have our annual meeting, where reports and accounts are presented, we think about our new officers, and deal with members’ issues and resolutions. In 2020 the Annual Gathering will be held in Blackpool from Tuesday 15th September to Friday 18th September.

The Growing Old Disgracefully Experience Week

The g.o.d. Experience Week is a highly recommended introductory event for those members who haven’t been to a g.o.d. residential event before. It lasts 5 days and aims to give new members a real insight into the ethos of the Network, whilst having a lot of fun. The course is led by experienced g.o.d members, and normally has about 18 to 20 participants. This event is open to women who have not yet joined g.o.d. Experience Week takes place every other year – the next one will be in 2019.

The Growing Old Disgracefully Recharge Week

The Recharge Week is an event held in different parts of the country each year. We have outings, entertainment, workshops and of course the chance to renew friendships and make new ones.

Local Groups

Groups organise smaller events and activities, usually monthly, in the areas where they are situated. Please see the g.o.d groups page.
