Focus on You the Best one Ever!

Our flagship event ‘Focus on You’ held on Wednesday 20th March at North Notts Arena, Worksop was the best one ever!


Over 150 young people got involved with our flagship show ‘Focus on You’ a celebration of the creativity of young people from within the Bassetlaw district.  Over the weeks leading up to this event, young people from different organisations worked towards the evening. They had been busily planning, creating and preparing. We had four young people helping backstage and the evening was presented by two young ladies who attend Post 16 in Worksop.

The young people involved gained new skills and techniques during their preparations, some towards examinations some to assist with a variety of qualifications, others within an activity during their weekly meetings. 

The event attracted young people from across Bassetlaw, from North Notts and RNN group Colleges and Academies and others from local organisations who work with and support young people. They all worked very hard on their acts and all enjoyed the experience. All the groups worked directly with our production manager Jenna, on their movement and/or vocals. The acts thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity and it was a very diverse and entertaining evening.  

Young people showed off their talents from hair and make-up, singing, acting, Makaton signing and different genres of dancing including contemporary and traditional Polish.  The 320 strong audience were incredible and a great night was had my all!

The charity raised over £1000 at this event to help with the work we do supporting young people across Bassetlaw.

Thank you to the staff from within the organisations, who helped the young people along the way. Without their support, commitment and sense of humour this event would not have been possible. Thank you also to the volunteers who assisted within the organisations prior to the event and those who have supported the charity in bringing Focus on You together.  A huge thank you to our amazing supporters who donated funding towards this event and also to everybody who gave us prizes for the raffle.  Thank you also, to the audience, for supporting this cause.  Finally a GREAT BIG thank you to our cast involved in Focus on You 2024 for their creativity, enthusiasm and style. 

We look forward to doing it all again next year!
