Former performers return to help run youth festival
FORMER performers at the Henley Youth Festival are helping to run this year’s event, which began this week.
Now in its 21st year, the festival features 48 events, mostly at schools, and has the theme of “Heroes”.
About 20 youngsters have been involved behind the scenes.
Co-chairwoman Lucie Henwood said: “This is how it should be, young people making the festival happen.
“It’s a great chance for students who are serious about careers in graphic design, event management, music, film, sound, lighting or stage management to get some real experience and work alongside industry professionals.
