Swansea Metropolitan launches youth arts festival
A new youth arts festival kicks off in Swansea this weekend.
The Olion Youth Arts Festival will showcase local talent including dance acts, bands and an art exhibition, with Britain’s Got Talent finalists A3 set to perform.
Organised by Swansea Metropolitan University, the free festival will get going from 11am to 4pm at Paradise Park in Townhill on Sunday.
A joint initiative by the Arts Council of Wales and the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government, the venture aims to reduce the number of young people in Wales who are not in education, employment or training (NEET).
