From 29th June -22 July 2012 Kingston came alive as young people from the ages of 5 to 26 showcased the very best in youth arts, selected from the UK and Internationally. We bring the most talented young people from across the globe together to create and celebrate alongside the young and old of Kingston upon Thames.
Over 5000 young people participated in workshops, projects and performances, showcasing their work in more than 300 events over 15 venues throughout the town. There was music and laughter along the riverside, theatre and drama pouring out from venues into the streets, dance bringing to life the oldest buildings, carnival parades with a twist of the surreal, circus performers suspended in places you wouldn't dream possible and the smiling faces of the hundreds of young volunteers who made it all possible.
