Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent encouraged young people to join in, have fun and be heard as part of Youth Week 2017 between 31 March and 9 April 2017.

“Each year Youth Week is a chance for the next generation to come together to learn, celebrate and best of all enjoy a fantastic program of events”.  

“Youth Week is a truly collaborative effort and the events on offer are made possible by the enthusiasm, dedication and commitment of our Youth Week Organising Committee”.    

“Every young person in our community has a desire to be included. The 2017 program is our most accessible yet with every single event or workshop catering to young people with a disability, “Cr Pynsent said.  

This year a jam packed program of over 25 free events includes Take the Stage, geocaching, two silent discos, two outdoor cinemas and a cooking competition.  

There is also huge range of workshops on offer, learn how to code, decorate cupcakes, twirl fire, make flower crowns, do nail art, make jewellery and even how to write your resume.  

Cessnock Youth Entertainment Committee event manager Eloise Burgess said the committee have had a long and great history with Youth Week which is continuing on this year.  

“Each year we hold a range of events in our area catering for a lot of young people. We are especially passionate about live music and we love to support the young, up and coming bands and artists in our area”.  

“This year two of our members are attending the 2017 launch of Youth Week, which is a great achievement for us, and all the young people involved,” Ms Burgess said.
