Over 1,000 people celebrate Youth Day at John Mac Hall

This year’s Youth Day saw over a thousand people joined in the Youth Day activities that saw some 30 groups and organisations exhibit their offering to young people.

The event organised by the Gibraltar Youth Day Committee, composed of young people, was held at the John Mackintosh Hall over the weekend.

As well as a fair there were live performances, workshops and arts and crafts sessions.

The event was supported by Gibraltar Cultural Services and the Gibraltar Youth Service on behalf of the Ministry of Culture, the Media, Youth and Sport, and attracted over a thousand people throughout the eight-hour event.

Around 30 groups and organisations exhibited their products and promoted their offering to young people.

Interactive workshops and live performances also took place, with some of these fully subscribed.

Welcome additions this year, included an open mic session on the John Mackintosh hall stage, which saw numerous and varied performances, offering a great platform for young people to showcase their talents.

Finally, youth band ‘Voltage’ wowed the fully packed Rock on the Rock Club, closing Youth Day 2019 on a high.
