Gin & Sin jazzes up spring retirement festival finale

SOME of Brisbane's most talented jazz musicians are extending an invitation to enjoy an intimate musical evening as the finale to the 2016 Lendlease Spring Retirement Festival on Thursday, October 20.

Gin & Sin - Jazz Salon Performance is the brainchild of popular Brisbane artists Chris Osborne and Susan Bennett.

Their ingredients for the perfect party are simple: incredible jazz mash-ups performed by top musicians, a little gin and a sprinkling of sly fun.

The show is at Hibiscus Nambour from 5.30pm for a 6pm show.

Retirement Living Queensland regional manager Mark Criddle said having such acclaimed artists highlighted the quality and variety of this year's festival program and the number of relevant, creative events for over-55s.

"Music is a big part of so many people's lives and the Spring Retirement Festival celebrates the importance the arts and creative pursuits have for people as they age," he said.

"One of the great thrills of the festival is sharing such a diverse program of events and our vibrant villages with the wider community".

The show is the finale of the fourth annual Lendlease Spring Retirement Festival, offering a series of free creative events for over-55s, hosted by 11 of its retirement villages.

All events are free and are for those aged 55 and over.
