Young people enjoy storytelling and silent disco at this year's EACHfest

Sep 04, 2019
This year saw the return of EACHfest, our popular festival event for young people.

After a break last year, the festival day was back with a bang, and 14 young people aged 13+ from across the whole EACH region came along to Milton for a day of activities including storytelling, a silent disco and a performance from a pianist, with plenty of opportunities to sing along!


The young people and staff were kept entertained during a delicious BBQ-style lunch by local jugglers Will and Matthew, and the meal was rounded off with a fabulous ice cream factory.

The day ended on the lawn, where the young people were able to unleash their creative talents by decorating old records and cassettes, while enjoying a beautiful acoustic set from singer-songwriter Boo Hewerdine, and some delicious mocktails.


EACHfest is one of ​many activities we put on for young people to have an experience they might not otherwise be able to. See The Den for more information.

  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
