Children, young people and their families are invited to a free two-day festival to celebrate three years of the Imagine This Torbay project.
More than 50 voluntary and charity organisations have worked together, led by the Torbay Community Development Trust to put youngsters in charge of envisaging what kind of Torbay they want to grow up in.
Three years ago, at the original festival at Parkfield in Paignton more than 500 children and young people raised concerns about the environment, safer streets, greater access for all, emotional wellbeing and hang out spaces.
Since then, 13 young people’s groups have been working on the areas of concern and they will be showcasing their work at this year’s festival at Lupton House on the weekend of May 28/9th from 2-8pm.
James Arthur, Partnership Coordinator said: “This year we’re again putting young people in the lead to bring us a free family festival showcasing and celebrating all that our young people and partners in the Imagine This… partnership have achieved over the last three years.
“A great deal of important work has been going on behind the scenes and we will be presenting the findings at this festival.as well as again looking to the future.
“It is also an opportunity to have fun and we have a whole host of activities to suit all ages and interests.”
Among the activities available will be the Lego Masters Community, the Sound Communities Boom Bus, a silent disco, and dungeons and dragon’s roleplay.
