The choir café at Bowdon Youth Festival

The café was yet again a great success with all profits going to choir funds to buy new music. The café offered tea, coffee, homemade sandwiches and homemade cakes, all donated by choir members. The cakes were delicious and ranged from lemon drizzle to ginger to brownies. The café was open all weekend and was run entirely by the choir.

The Festival was once again a brilliant platform for the young performers to display their musical and dramatic abilities and is growing in size every year. It was marvellous to see eager faces waiting to perform, some with instruments bigger than themselves! The café becomes the hub of the festival as the youth of Bowdon and surrounding areas wait for their time slots. Not only was the café successful in bringing in over £800 for choir music, but people also commented on how friendly and pleasant the atmosphere was.

Bowdon Youth Festival is a tremendous event and run by such dedicated volunteers who work extremely hard to make this event work for the community. Well done all – it was well worth the tired feet at the end of Sunday.
