About Judith Holder
Judith does an uplifting and interesting talk about ageing. A funny and affectionate look at what it now means to get old, or live with someone who has reached their best before date and now likes a slip on shoe, has enlarged the font on their phone, or has asked to see the manager in Sainsburys. Her talks are affectionate, intuitive and authentic.
Judith Holder has been responsible for a lot of well-known peak time TV for both BBC and ITV.
She’s produced some of the best comedy talent in the business including Dame Edna, Clive James, Victoria Wood, Lenny Henry and Billy Connolly. Amongst many other documentaries, she reunited the cast of The Sound of Music, sent Joanna Lumley to a desert island and made a comedy series about the North/South divide called It’s not grim up North.
She has two BAFTA nominations, and four Royal Television Society awards – which is code for she’s been round the block a few times.
Age is something that really interests her. As a result, she recently spent a year as Visiting Research Fellowship at the University of Oxford’s Institute of Population Ageing. She’s currently Chamberlain at Kellogg College, Oxford.

Judith speaks on the subject of ageing with a large drizzle of mischief as well as affection. The baby boomers (of which she is one) are reinventing older age. They are acting more like a band of teenagers with liver spots rather than settling for a life in beige making tray bakes for the W. I. They’ve got all the money, they’re going to live till they’re about 103 and they have the highest divorce rate in the UK. You’re more likely to find them at zumba or Glastonbury than on a bowling green these days, and shop in Zara rather than M and S – so ignore or underestimate them at your peril!

"Judith was able to talk about all the things that we felt, saw and thought about but would never share. Even with our closest friend. A great evening’s entertainment."
"For women of a certain age, Judith's talk really hit the spot. Never have WI ladies been so attentive and laughed out loud so often during the Grumpy Old Women presentation"
