Summer End Youth Festival set to rock Pittville Park

youth fest web picYoung people in Cheltenham can look forward to finishing their summer holidays on a high at a fantastic festival taking place on Wednesday 24 August in Pittville Park.

After the success of last year’s event, we’re delighted to announce that we will once again be holding this free event which will feature a dizzying array of sports, arts and music.

From 2pm – 6pm festival goers are being invited to come along and enjoy interactive workshops including; samba drum, graffiti and the exhilarating modern sport of Parkour and freerunning.

The Wilson museum will also be bringing along an exciting digital art experiment for all those budding artists to flex their creative talents.

Taking centre stage at the event will be a fast and furious BMX-ing and scootering competition staged and judged by pro riders from Team Extreme. The competition is open to anyone aged 8 years old and over. All abilities are welcomed and entrants are being advised to arrive early to register.

The backdrop to all this fantastic fun will be 4 hours of top notch music from local music bands and music acts including; Jojo Danielle, Maxine Stacey, Freddie Pearce, Grove, Polary and Alluzeion.

On the day other local organisations are coming along and there will be information available from Gloucestershire Young Carers, Tesco Farm to Fork scheme, Crime Stoppers and Active Gloucestershire.

We’re organising this festival in partnership with Studio 340, Cheltenham Borough Council, Cheltenham Trust, The Wilson and Travis Perkins who have kindly donated the loan of a generator for the duration of the event.
