About Us

What is Mirthy?

Mirthy is an interactive platform for those aged 55+ to connect over shared experiences and interests. We offer an assortment of online events, from educational talks to musical matinees and even exercise classes! We believe we can indulge your curiosity by providing a community for like-minded people to explore new ideas and activities.

How does it work?

Our Mirthy hosts (often over 55s themselves) offer a range of online events covering a variety of interesting topics, so there's something for everyone! Simply click here to browse our event catalogue and when you're ready, register for a free user account to book an online experience. After registering, you will be emailed a Zoom link to attend the event!

Who are you?

We are a team who care deeply about helping millions of over 55s learn, share, and connect with others through community events.

“As my mom and dad approached retirement, I noticed how their wellbeing was being affected by their decreasing social circles and the increasing inactive free time they had alone. As my background is in technology, I wanted to use it to find a solution to this issue.” - Dhruv, co-founder

“While dialogue around an ageing population focuses on the growing burden on health services, my experience sees a generation of people with more energy, desire for life and time than ever before. I believe that our third age can be the best years of our life, and Mirthy is going to be there for you every step of the way!” - Alex, co-founder

I'm currently quite lonely. Can Mirthy help?
