ORGANISATION // Harris Voluntary Service
PROJECT // Isle of Harris Youth Music Festival
TOTAL PROJECT COST // £10,100
LEADER FUNDING PROVIDED // £9,090
The project will be a music festival, organised by pupils from Sir E Scott school after they had requested such an event. There are festivals in all the other islands in the Outer Hebrides except Harris. All are running successfully. The plan is to make this an annual event if successful.
The aims of the project are to allow local young people to plan and organise an event for them, which they have asked for. To create a lasting legacy, in that, the festival will become an annual event and will tie in with other festivals up and down the length of the Outer Hebrides.
The festival would be alcohol free and for under 25's, promoting healthly living. The local Alcohol and Drugs Partnership will be present to warn attendents aboout the dangers of drink and drugs.
