Riviera International Centre, Chestnut Avenue

Sun 17th November 2013


The Torquay 55+ Retirement Roadshow is to be held at The Riviera International Centre on Sunday 17th November 10am-4pm; located in the heart of South Devon and just a short stroll from Torquay seafront.

The beautiful English Riviera stretches along twenty two miles of unspoilt and spectacular coastline and covering the three unique towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham.

This year Torbay received more Blue Flag awards for water quality and cleanliness than anywhere else in the UK and a Purple Flag award which recognises excellence in the management of towns and city centres at night.

Torquay is the home town of the famous Agatha Christie. The Agatha Christie Mile runs along Torquay seafront between the Imperial and Grand Hotels and features a number of landmarks significant in the author’s life and works. 

Explore the Agatha Christie Literary Trail through the English Riviera and South Devon, which reveals the inspirations she took from the local area and featured in her novels. There is currently an exhibition on at Torquay museum where you can view the Agatha Christie Gallery. 

This exclusive exhibition is the first of its  kind in Torquay for many a year. We have researched and selected local and national businesses to be able to provide the local community with a wealth of valuable information to help guide them in preparation for their senior years.

There will be approximately fifty versatile businesses attending including NHS, Government and local charities.

The aim is for the Roadshow to be informative for all our visitors and presented in a fun and vibrant atmosphere to the local community so they can see and speak to all the wonderful exhibitors and find out what help and support is available to them locally and all  from one room!

We want the Torquay Roadshow to have a wonderful display of many types of businesses so there will be something for everyone. Typical exhibitors will be promoting and giving advice on the following topics:

Health * Finance * Legal * Property * Care * Leisure * Education * Fashion * Beauty

Asda has kindly offered to help promote the Roadshow and will be contributing in the form of a fashion show, displaying their current Christmas Season lines.
We have invited Ariella Raqs 'Bay Belly Dancers' and 'Charleston Dancers' to perform their current routines and promote healthy living and exercise in a fantastic vibrant display!

Charities attending are Blue Cross and Crossroads Care both are very much needed charities and do amazing work around Torbay, we welcome them to our Roadshow.


Teas, coffees and cake will be available on the day within the arena. There are toilets and a lift for your convenience. If you wish to stay locally for lunch there is a fabulous restaurant on site 'Bay Brasserie' overlooking the Bay and Torre Abbey Gardens.

There are many local restaurants and pubs close by within walking distance if you wish to have refreshments off site.
