Young people's Green Festival heading to Morecambe Promenade

Escape2Make held its first Green Festival at Scotch Quarry Lancaster in August 2022

Young people will be the driving force behind the return of a Green Festival this summer as it takes place for the first time on Morecambe Promenade.

Lancaster youth charity Escape2Make (E2M) will host the Green Festival on Saturday August 24 from 10am to 4pm and have 217 free spaces for young people aged 11-18 from Lancaster & Morecambe to sign up to, to help make it happen.

E2M held its first Green Festival at Scotch Quarry, Lancaster, in August 2022.

The festival was an open invitation to the local community to see what 11-18 year-olds had been doing over the summer in a variety of free workshops.

Alongside the young people's stalls were food vendors, live music, and theatre performances, drumming from Morecambe based More Music, yoga and gong baths.
