We provide a range of events to both showcase and celebrate young people's work and achievements across the arts!

We feel it is important to recognise achievements and do this in as many ways as possible from small group presentations in our own settings to exhibitions in local galleries and larger events such as project presentations in the Royal Borough’s Mayor’s Parlour and community events.

Our events recognise reactivity and passion and the hard work, commitment and determination it has taken young people to get to where they are. They also inspire other young people to participate, achieve and act as a platform for progression.
