The first ever EACHfest took place at Milton hospice on Wednesday 5th August, giving young people who use EACH’s services the opportunity to experience a music festival for a day.
15 young people came along from all 3 hospice localities, and had a real taste of festival life with creative workshops (including welly decorating!), African drumming sessions, a festival photo booth, festival-themed Mocktail bar, and a visit from an ice cream van and a juggler to entertain during the BBQ-style lunch. A festival experience room was set up, with blacked-out windows and clips of festival highlights from this summer playing. Glow sticks were also provided, and all festival-goers were given an EACHfest wristband as a memento to complete the festival vibe!
The event was hailed as a great success by the young people and staff, and we’re hoping this will be the start of many EACHfests to come!
