And it’s not just about performing… young people create props, hair styles, make-up as well as documenting the event with photography and compering the evening – they’ve also cooked for our VIP guests, and spent months creating the menu. All the profits from the ticket sales go towards our youth counselling service called Active Listening, which provides young people with FREE counselling.
