Birthdays have been celebrated for a long time, through history and across cultures. But do we ever stop to ask exactly why?

As part of the ‘Challenging the ageing narrative’ series, this event will look at where birthday rituals started, and what they have become.

What is the purpose of a birthday? What are the key elements to making a birthday celebration stand out? Is there are time when celebrating your age gets harder? Why?
