The event by Bell House will discuss a number of steps, and offer some practical tips and uplifting quotes, to help us make the most of our lives, whatever our age - and even in the midst of a pandemic. 

Maggy Pigott will share how her sixties have become her happiest and most surprising decade (so far), including getting her first book, “How to Age Joyfully: Eight Steps to a Happier, Fuller Life”, published at 68! The book, with a Foreword by Dame Judi Dench, has received positive reviews and endorsements, including from experts in the health and ageing world. Sir Muir Gray (Professor and Consultant in Public Health, first Chief Knowledge Officer for the NHS, author and more) has called it ‘an outstanding book…a manifesto for living better longer’

In these challenging times, it is extremely important to look after ourselves and others. Fortunately, research and evidence has shown there are actions we can take, and behaviours we can adopt, to help improve our physical and mental health and social wellbeing. 

As Mae West said: 'You only live once but if you do it right, once is enough'.

Maggy will be interviewed by Nigel Osner about her book and this will be followed by a Q&A session.

Too Young to stay in, too old to go out! by Nigel Osner (

Listen to our very own Trustee Maggy Pigott on Episode 4 of Nige'ls Podcast HERE


If you believe what "they" tell us, you'd believe in ages and stages and as you enter the golden years, your life is all but over.

In this new podcast, we aim to dispel the myths and the apparent prerequisites of "old age" and set out to prove that age is not a number but a state of mind.

We walk you gently through the joy and despair of coming to terms with the golden years whilst upgrading ourselves to the platinum years and ignoring the societal template of old age."
