Young people in North Manchester who want to beat boredom these summer holidays need look no further than the Broadhurst Fieldfest on Thursday 20 August.
Whether it's daring, sporting or pampering they're after young people aged between eight and 18 will find something to their liking at Broadhurst Fields, Moston Lane between 1pm and 5pm. All activities are completely free. A bungee trampoline, climbing walls, a 'bucking bronco-style' rodeo bull, archery sessions, a mini-Olympics and beat the goalie and Table Football World Cup competitions are among the more energetic offerings.
Young people can get in touch with their creative sides through the Best of the Fest talent show and a workshop with arts organisation Spearfish giving them the chance to turn their hands to street art or even customise their own t-shirts.
They will be able to speak their minds by leaving recorded messages in 'Little Bro's Diary Room.'
And there's nail art, make-overs and prom hair demos by hairdressers Chandlers of Moston Lane on offer in the Shimmer and Shine Zone.
Councillor Rosa Battle, Assistant Executive Member for Culture and Leisure, said: "Broadhurst Fieldfest is an activity-packed event which promises to be hugely enjoyable. With such a huge range of things going on, there's no excuse for anyone to be sitting on their sofa while it's taking place."
The event is organised by Manchester City Council in partnership with Northwards Housing with sponsorship from British Gas. It is part of the Proud Of Manchester' campaign which encourages residents to take pride in themselves and their community.
