What is Towersey Festival?

Towersey Festival is an annual festival of dance, music and arts. The festival will be in Thame, Oxfordshire. It has taken place every August bank holiday weekend since its founding in 1965!

What are we going to do there?

The Aylesbury Youth Action team will raise awareness of youth social action through volunteering within the Aylesbury Vale.

We aim to do this through various planned activities such as; assisting the festival ‘Wombles’ and helping other organisations throughout the festival.

Our aim is to enhance the skills and knowledge of our youth in social action. By empowering, encouraging and developing their confidence, we can only expect that our youth will take this outside and make a positive impact in our local community.


Why should I come to Towersey Festival?

We have been participating at the festival for more than four decades. The festival provides a safe learning environment where we were able to integrate the lives of our young volunteers by:

  • Developing their confidence
  • Spark creativity
  • Training them to be more independent
  • Enhance their social and communication skills

We hope that through this project, you will be able to create new friendships, generate a positive change and provide support for those who are in need in our community.

Don’t be deterred if you don’t feel you have a natural spark for the festivals objectives, Towersey is sure to have something for everyone and we can guarantee you will have a fun filled weekend plus it is always good to try out new and exciting things : )
