Sutton-on-Sea to host ‘Celebration of Youth’ this May half-term

A free two-day celebration of Sutton-on-Sea and its youth is taking place this upcoming May half-term at Meridale Youth and Community Centre on Wednesday 29 May, 10am to 4pm, and Thursday 30 May from 5pm to 8pm.

The Celebration of Youth event is part of the South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership’s Arts Council England NPO project and seeks to encourage pride of place amongst the younger generations of Sutton-on-Sea.

Children and families of all are welcome to come along to enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment.

On Wednesday 29 May, a pop-up graffiti wall will be available throughout the whole day, 10am to 4pm, as well as a pop-up skate park which be available from 12pm to 4pm. A silent disco will be taking place on Thursday 30 May, from 5pm to 8pm.

Throughout the event, DJ Alex from Popcorn Media will be providing a wide range of music for visitors to enjoy.

No booking is required for the event, and all children under the age of 16 should be accompanied by an adult.

The project is part of the Partnership’s NPO project through funding from Arts Council England, which looks to support arts, culture, heritage and creativity across the whole of South and East Lincolnshire, providing meaningful opportunity and programming for residents, developing the sector and helping to build the arts, culture and heritage offer.

Sutton-on-Sea was identified as East Lindsey’s creative hub site to deliver creative activity as part of the funding, supported through the new Colonnade building currently under construction, with the programme being supported by an eight-member culture board which draws experience from a variety of sectors.

Councillor Craig Leyland, Leader at East Lindsey District Council, said: “I’m delighted that we are able to have another free, exciting event coming up in Sutton-on-Sea for residents and visitors to enjoy this half term, that focuses on the younger generation and giving them opportunities that may not always be available in their local area.

“As well as the chance to try something new and have some fun, I hope that the Celebration will act as an educational experience to learn about arts and culture and the history of Sutton-on-Sea, and promote a pride of place in their surroundings and environment.”
