We are hoping that the sun will shine on our first ever summer festival for school leavers!

Future Fest 2016 will provide the perfect way for young people in Barnsley to celebrate their GCSE results on Thursday 25 August between 2.00pm and 5.00pm. The event will be held in the Urban Park, a fantastic outdoor space behind the college’s Old Mill Lane campus, and will feature live bands including established festival performers Late Night Legacy, as well as upcoming local talent performing on two stages. Other attractions include stalls, entertainment, street food, bucking bronco, camper van photo booth, penalty shootout, drumming workshops, an amusement thrill ride and prize giveaways.

It is hoped that the festival will become an annual summer event and somewhere for school leavers to enjoy a festival atmosphere on their doorstep.

Future Fest is taking place on Thursday 25 August, 2.00pm – 5.00pm in the Urban Park at Barnsley College’s Old Mill Lane campus. Entry is free and wristbands can be booked online via futurefestbarnsley.eventbrite.co.uk
