Up Our Street:Pop Ups is an exciting programme of FREE or 'pay what you like' events and activities for 0-25 yr olds across North West Luton.
Since April 2019 we have brought over 700 young people everything from beatboxing to freerunning, street dance to open mics, drumming to musical theatre, scriptwriting to young artist mentoring as well as our very own Taleshakers storytelling, movement and play sessions for 0-6 year olds, Mums, Dads and carers.
We have hosted BBC Writers, West End Performers, Leading Industry Dance Makers and the very best of our Local Creatives who have all expertly inspired the Next Generation through their workshops.
Sharing and showcasing the arts, talent and creativity of Luton's Next Generation. A chance to celebrate who we are and where we're from #upourstreet #Ibelong
Our say, Our way
This is your chance to shape and decide exactly what you want to see next on the Up Our Street programme.
This hour long session led by company Director David Lloyd will give you the perfect opportunity to have your say, your way. This is your town and this is your time to shape its future.
Come share your ideas because this is the place to be heard, where your voices are valued. This will not be some boring sit down at a table kind of meeting...we promise it'll be fun and most importantly creative.
We are asking all young people to come and let us know exactly what you think North West Luton deserves to see next.
Date: Friday 23rd August
Location: Leagrave Library, Marsh Road, Luton, LU3 2NL
