Motown lovers were treated to an afternoon of live music when three-piece act The Boys of Motown took the stage at Fiddlers Green Retirement Village in Berwick on Wednesday 20 September.
General Manager for Lendlease Retirement Living Steve Howarth said the event, which was held as part of the national Lendlease Spring Retirement Festival, was a stand-out success for the village, with attendees already asking for the Boys of Motown’s return.
“Everyone had such a brilliant time and we already have people asking when the next event will be taking place,” he said.
“We had residents up on the stage being serenaded by the musicians and others dancing in their seats and across the aisles – they really brought the Motown classic ‘dancing in the streets’ to life.”
Over 60 attendees – more than half of which were visitors to the village – filled out the village’s community centre.
“We were thrilled to welcome so many new peoples into the village and showcase what great things we have to offer the local Berwick community,” Mr Howarth said.
The event is part of a program of events being held around Victoria as part of the Lendlease Spring Retirement Festival during September and October.
The retirement festival is a chance for those aged 55 and over to celebrate the joy of getting older and trying something new.
All events are free and are open to all members of the public aged 55 and over.
Bookings for upcoming events are essential and can be made online, or by calling the Spring Retirement Festival hotline on 1800 550 550.
