Live acoustic sounds, jazz music and Indian Dohl drumming were all headline acts at this year’s EACHFest.
The event was open to all young people aged 11 – 18, across all localities, who use EACH services but do not access short breaks. They were treated to their very own festival experience hosted at our hospice in Milton.
The one day event gave the attendees a real taste of festival life with the conference room being transformed into a laid-back tent with beautiful drapes and colourful lights complete with acoustic music from local musician Isabel Squirrel. Outside the garden was also a hive of activity with live jazz music as well as an Indian Dohl drumming workshop and creative art activities. Jugglers kept everyone entertained during the BBQ style lunch and a visit from an ice cream van was a welcome treat in the warm sunshine. The day was rounded off with mocktails on the lawn from the Pyramid Pub, with ‘Muddy Puddles’ and ‘Mosh Pit Mojitos’ just some of the tasty drinks on the menu!
The event was praised by all the young people who attended saying it was “great fun” and had “inspirational live music”.
