A free evening of music and games will be held at Bath College’s Somer Valley Campus to encourage intergenerational learning.

The event, organised by Bath College, Bath and North East Somerset Age UK and Small Business Focus, takes place in the early evening on July 7th.
As well as music and games, there will be a buffet and the chance to meet animals and birds kept by the college’s land-based department.


Matt, manager of teaching and learning, at Bath College has been working to promote intergenerational learning as part of IntGen.
Business leaders from the United Kingdom, Spain, Finland, Greece and Belgium are all part of the IntGen project.
At the moment, they are working on an online course to connect young and old entrepreneurs so they can pass on business skills.
Mr Finch, who travelled to Greece for the project last month, said: “Everyone is welcome to come to the free games event.
“It’s an opportunity to get people together to have a fun evening and get different age groups mixing together.
“Intergenerational learning can be a great thing. By getting together in a social context, there will be a lot of learning going on.”
Students from Bath Spa University will be participants in the IntGen online entrepreneurs course starting in October.
Mr Finch is also planning a tea dance for young and old generations on Thursday October 27th in The Shrubbery Restaurant at Bath College’s City Centre Campus.
The Somer Valley event will run from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. To attend contact Age UK Bath and North East Somerset on (01225) 466135 or e-mail reception@ageukbanes.co.uk.
