On Tuesday night the 2014 HYF programme and the theme ‘Heroes’ was unveiled to local school representatives at the D:two Centre.
This fantastic festival for young people kicks off on 8 March with Gig Night at the Henley Youth Centre and offers a great programme of art, music, theatre shows, sport and dance and has something for everyone both during school time and out of school.
Lucie Henwood, Co Chair (pictured right) welcomed and thanked everyone for supporting the HYF and gave a special mention to Lucy Beattie who had joined the committee as the festival’s administrator this year.
There is a new look website this year which has been designed by Henley-based branding and design agency Thought by Design and OakTree Wealth Management have this year sponsored the printing of the HYF programme which was designed by local student Amber Roberts.
The new event for this year is a Senior Stonor Run for students in Years 7 -13 on Saturday 15 March. If you’d like to run in this event, book via your school PE department.
Between the 14 and 16 March there will be an exhibition at the Henley Youth Centre of the art and photography competition entries and on the 16 March at 3pm there will be a prize-giving ceremony. Entries for the art, writing, film and photography competitions need to be submitted by 28 February.
The festival has chosen the Henley Skatepark Initiative as their charity this year and all donations collected at the Kenton events will go towards building the new skatepark in Henley.
