Hedge Youth: Entertain us!
All the Hedge Kids and Hedge Youth are invited to come and practise fire spinning with Lara each evening, at the Red Tent. You’ll be able to try out fire staffs and fire poi, create Fire Shows and at the end of the week, come and be a part of our very special Fire Show and Fire Ceremony on Friday evening.
Friday Night is Cabaret Night, and everyone is welcome to perform in the Hedge Has Got Talent Show!
At the weekend, the Hoodwinks tent will become the Hoodwinks Woodland DJ Stage, giving young performers a showcase, alongside the Hedge DJs.
All workshop facilitators, staff and volunteers working with Hedge Kids and Hedge Youth have completed first aid training and hold current enhanced DBS certificates. We have a core safeguarding team, including Designated Safeguarding Officers.
