YO Arts Fest: ACE performers take the stage

On Thursday 15th November 2018, ACE was excited to announce that we had a couple of our young people perform at Paper Arts YO Fest at the Docklands, St. Paul’s. What a turn out! The hallway and performance area was packed, the atmosphere was vibing and artists were on fire!

It was a privilege to be a part of this great event, bringing together and highlighting all of the youth opportunities from across the city, hosted by young people for young people.

The one-of-a-kind evening was opened by inspiring speech from the Lord Mayor, an artist herself, who told the crowd to believe in themselves and that: “there’s no such thing as instant success. It’s a long road, there are highs and there are lows but don’t give up!”

This was quickly followed by a handful of amazing performers, including our very own Xyzelle and Delocx. We were very proud, and even made into the local news! You can read their review of the evening here: https://www.bristol247.com/festivals/features-festivals/review-yo-arts-fest/
