Big Celebration

This event has passed

Young people are always facing pressure to change, to develop and to grow in a world, which is never still and is often uncertain. Developed by young people from The Lowry’s Targeted Programme and Youth Employability Scheme, the evening will creatively showcase the journeys of many inspirational young people who have knocked down the barriers society has put in-front of them.

The evening will showcase an eclectic mix of work, co-created by young people including Film, Visual Arts and Presentations, culminating in a new piece of theatre exploring the lives of young carers ‘Time to Bloom’. The Lowry is recognised as a beacon of good practice nationally, within the field of Socially Engaged practice, the evening will be a platform for Young Carers, Young People Not in Education, Employment or Training, Young Parents, Local Schools and a new programme developed by young people who are or experiencing Homelessness (All targeted projects will be featured within the evening).


Although Rose’s Mum is gone, the earth keeps spinning. School pressure builds, her Dad keeps struggling and she keeps caring.

Guided and inspired by the memory of her Mum, Rose begins a quest to find the happiness in the world again. Step by step, the path becomes clearer.
Every Rose blooms in its own time!
