EVERYTHING positive about the youngsters of Hebden Royd is set to be showcased from 1pm on Saturday.

The annual Fair For Youth festivals returns to Calder Holmes Park, Hebden Bridge, skate and BMX jams and competitions.

There will also be inflatable football, graffiti workshops and a range of live music, hosted by a number of young musicians and DJ’s from within the local area.

An event spokesperson said: “Fair For Youth has been an amazing day to organise over the past two years and it is hoped that the weather will be kind and that history can repeat itself once again on Saturday.

“Organised for young people by young people and the Friends of Calder Holmes Park, Fair For Youth will again provide a chance for local youngsters to find out about all the exciting activities that are available to them with information available from different organisations who provide activities for young people.”

In attendance will be Hebden Bridge Woodcraft folk, along with Hebden Bridge Junior Band and a number of other organisations.

All afternoon, music will be heard across the park, ranging from rock, punk, indie and acoustic band sets to DJ’s playing summery beats till early evening.

The ‘Woodies’ will be running Club Joker, providing food and drink, alongside the recently opened Park Life Café, whilst Top Dog Promotions will take charge on the skate, BMX and graffiti scene.

The spokesperson added: “Young people of Hebden Bridge and beyond, come down to the park, have a jig, have a sandwich and have a go at spraying your own tag. The afternoon is yours.”
