Double celebration for Popular County Youth Arts project

Nottinghamshire’s popular County Youth Arts project which is based in Mansfield, will kick-off a double celebration today, with the first of two shows at Mansfield Palace Theatre.

The award winning youth arts project is celebrating 20 years of delivering some of the most ambitious and innovative projects with the young people of Nottinghamshire.

The second celebration is for ten years based at the Old Library which has enabled the team develop their own projects and work with over 30,000 young people over the years across music, dance, drama, film and media with young people being at the heart of their work.

County Youth Arts is just one of the services delivered by Inspire, a Community Benefit Society which delivers a range of cultural, art, library and learning services on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council. 

Most recently the County Youth Arts project were invited by the BBC Proms to take the Able Orchestra project, which works with physically disabled young people, to perform alongside the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra using digital technology.

The team are now looking forward to another 20 years and setting out their vision and showcasing much of their work at a special event at Mansfield Palace Theatre this evening (Thursday 16th) and tomorrow night Showcase 2017 will feature performances from young people across the county of various abilities and experience.

The project will also feature everything from hip hop to rock and pop, street dance, contemporary dance, drama and comedy, all weaved together to entertain. The Showcase project works with more than 400 young people each year for several months in preparation for the show with initial auditions taking place in the autumn.
