CYL - Queen's Platinum Jubilee Event 2022
On the 3rd June 2022, CYL held a community event to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, but to also mark a poignant moment in time for CYL, our 15 year anniversary!
The event, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, brought together children and young people from across the country who had previously engaged with our creative programmes. This included a performance on the day from Pedro, who was once a student with us.
Children and young people were provided with an all access experience within the building, participating in exciting and fun activities with studio professionals. Taster sessions were had by all including: beat making, podcast interviews, photoshoots and recording sessions in the studios. The opportunities didn’t stop there, with free food and refreshments, which included local businesses Blackstar catering and Ali’s ice creams, serving up a delicious array of fried/jerk chicken and sweet treats.
We were proud to host such a wonderful event, with an incredible turnout by community members far and wide. CYL looks forward to organising many more events such as this one in the future and showcasing future superstars in the making.
