One of Brimbank’s most popular events promises to be bigger and better in 2019.

The Brimbank Seniors Festival will run through October and ticket allocations are already being organised for the most popular events.

The lunch and dance will this year be held at a new venue, Sheldon Reception and Convention Centre in Sunshine West.

To make sure tickets are distributed fairly, this year’s allocation will be drawn by ballot.

The ballot can be filled out online from Monday, September 2, and will remain open until Sunday, September 15.

Successful applicants will be notified by October 2.

There’s plenty of other festival events.

Barefoot bowls and barbecue will be rolled out at Delahey Community Centre on October 10.

Participants will be taught bowls rudiments before enjoying a game or two and a sausage sizzle.

Fitness, dancing, cooking classes and a variety of other activities will run throughout the festival at various locations.

In one cooking class, six cooks will feature in a demonstration, giving the audience a unique opportunity to get up close and ask questions in an intimate setting.
