WHY BECOME INVOLVED?
‘When I was young there was nowhere under 18’s could perform. LYWAG gave us a chance to play in front of an audience and encouraged our talent. It helped inspire me to go to university to study music which I now teach in a local school. Every year I return to volunteer and help run the sound desks. ‘ Matt
When you have a couple of kids, even free events can be really expensive but the fact all inflatables are free means we can stay for the whole day. There are lots of activities and different types of music. It’s definitely one of the highlights of our summer. (Jane, Young Mum)
‘The young people all really enjoyed performing and participating in the activities available. It helps bring together the different groups within the community.’ Keith Guy, Music Teacher, Downside Juniors
A unique Festival in that it has young people at it's heart. It is doing some of the most joined up youth work because of this festival day and it's support in the area (informal and uniformed organisations work with
young people) Dean Pusey Diocesan Youth Officer St Alban's
