THE Bathurst Seymour Centre has kicked off the city's NSW Senior Festival with a multicultural-themed open day.
More than 100 people visited the facility on Wednesday to enjoy a range of activities arranged by the staff and volunteers.
Seymour Centre CEO Terisa Ashworth said staff wanted to offer an inclusive event, which was why they chose to make the open day multicultural.
People got to hear a Chinese woman's story, translated into English by her daughter, and there was bagpipe playing, Bollywood dancing, an African drumming workshop and Tai Chi.

Continuing the theme, guests dined on foods such as hummus, German slice, lamb koftas, chicken curry and Greek salad.
Ms Ashworth was delighted to have so many people attend the open day and find out more about what the Seymour Centre can offer.
"It's a chance for seniors to participate in community and to do things they might not normally be involved in," she said.
The Seymour Centre will be involved in more activities on the NSW Seniors Festival program, including a storytelling day on Saturday and the volunteering expo next Wednesday.
