Who We Are
Young Radcliffe is an 8 strong community group comprising mainly parents of teenagers and younger children that was set up in response to needs identified by young people in the Radcliffe on Trent Community Plan 2012/13.
The resultant Action Plan 2014-2024 sets out a vision for the future of the village and was the result of extensive consultation, open meetings and surveys with the whole community, including specific Youth surveys and consultations with schools and groups. Clear demand emerged for events for the whole village aimed primarily at teenagers.
Young Radcliffe therefore organised a music festival, RadFest2k17, on 15th July 2017. The event was held at the local recreation ground and was funded entirely by donations, grants and ticket sales. Initially aimed at 12-18s, all ages were welcome; we attracted over 1,800 people, around half under 18. Volunteers came en-masse to help including marshals, technical teams, site decorators and litter pickers. We were able to raise sufficient funds to offer tickets at low cost; we feel this was instrumental in ensuring that the event was as inclusive as possible.
