The Youth Arts Takeover’s aim is getting young people to put on creative events with the focus being events at the Thornton Village Hall.

With the covid pandemic of 2020 we moved the majority of our work online, this included our events management sessions and our main event of 2020 our Summer Shutdown Festival. This was a 3 day online arts and wellbeing festival.

Youth Arts Takeover already has a large catalogue of events we have done. These range from live community events, arts variety shows, video game design, cinema screenings, outdoor gigs, interactive theatre, book creation and much more.

We focus on working with the local community and getting them aware and involved with what we do. The events we put on at the Thornton Village Hall are always geared towards being meaningful to the community.

Young people can get involved at many different levels with us and we cater for all with a dedicated and skilled staff team. We can also take on ideas young people come up with and strive to make these ideas into meaningful events.
