Free summer festival for children, young people and families
Saturday 24 June 12 – 6pm | Guildhall Square and Cultural Quarter Venues, SO14 7DU
What’s Next Southampton? is a free arts, fashion and music festival for children, young people and families. Enjoy indie, rap and R&B on the main stage. Join in with African Drumming, Bollywood Dancing, creative writing, theatre and music across the cultural quarter. Take part in a collaborative mural and join us for a fashion show finale!
The line-up is brought to you by six Cultural Connectors, aged 17-26 years. They’ve explored what young people want in the city and created a colourful festival.
Enjoy indie music from Belle Dame Band as well as rap and R&B from Amy Da Silva, Leah Tolksdorf Music, and LawZzy.
Have a go at African Drumming or Bollywood Dancing. Step inside an inflatable ‘brain dome’. Join in with creative writing, theatre and music workshops. Build your contacts with creative careers talks and networking. Or test your balance with a skateboarding drop-in.
With vintage clothing to browse and a collaborative mural to colour, the square will be alive with creativity!
