The Luton Youth Festival has been running since 2015. The event showcases young talent. The Luton Youth Festival takes place on the first Saturday of July every year. The free Festival and Family Fun Day remains one of the areas most unique and exciting events. The event is run entirely by volunteers and all film entry money goes directly into providing activities for young people.
In previous years we have shown films by invited local film makers but now are seeking to expand a wider range. All films are welcome but any created by a film maker under the age of 25 or with a local connection will be given priority. The films will be show through out the day in between performance acts.
The festival is held in the grounds of St Luke’s Church Leagrave. The grounds and building are filled with a diverse range of activities and performance. The festival’s unique environment, in the grounds and buildings of St Luke’s Church, Leagrave creates an eclectic atmosphere where all generations can come together and celebrate the talent of young people and celebrate the positive creative work of the town's schools.
The performance stages feature everything from street dance to ballet, heavy metal to school choirs . By displaying the films between the performances we hope to ensure a larger audience for the films.
The festival is a five minute walk from Leagrave train station and a five minute drive from junction 10 of the M1. Luton is a 25 minute train ride from London St Pancras.
