Takeover Festival

Takeover Festival

TAKEOVER FESTIVAL 6 - 19 APRIL 2020

WILTSHIRE CREATIVE HANDS OVER TO YOUNG PEOPLE!

Our Young Ambassadors, aged 14-21, worked with Wiltshire Creative staff to plan their first Takeover Festival – an exciting mix of events, performances and activities during the 2020 Easter Holidays. Unfortunately, the programme couldn't be presented as planned at Salisbury Arts Centre and Salisbury Playhouse. But that didn't stop them, they quickly created a series of events and activities you could enjoy from the comfort of your own home. 

Aged 14–21 and like to get involved as a Young Ambassador?
