NORTH KENSINGTON COMMUNITY YOUTH FESTIVAL IS BACK!

Last year youth services from Kensington & Chelsea held the North Kensington Community Youth Festival to bring the community together and show support for those affected by the Grenfell Tower disaster.

Due to its success the festival will be taking place again this year on Saturday 30th June 2018, from 12pm6pm, at the Westway Sports & Fitness Centre located at 1 Crowthorne Road, W10 6RP.

The festival which is a totally free event will include a 6-a-side football tournament, a talent competition showcasing a variety of artists, local talent, surprise guests and more.

Alongside Youth Action Alliance, Epic CIC will once again take a lead role in the delivery of the North Kensington Community Youth Festival by coordinating and delivering both the performance areas of the event and the 6-a-side football tournament. 

The stage area taking place on the large basketball court will host a talent competition with local artists, dancers and musicians, guest judges and internationally recognised artists, radio and tv personalities as well as housing a number of interactive activities and games. The football tournament will include boys and girls teams from age groups of under 12 up to under 16's, showcasing an exciting array of local talent that has also represented Kensington and Chelsea through Epic at the London Youth Games.

Epic CIC has been a key partner with Youth Action Alliance in ensuring the festival is one that celebrates the diverse make up and talents of the local residents, recognises the sensitivities required to respectfully honour those affected by the Grenfell Tower Fire and maintains excellent working relationships to bring the community together.
