Last Friday, the End of Year Musical Showcase hosted by YOYO, brought young people from across Lewisham together as they enjoyed a feast of youth talent.
The event took place at TNG Youth & Community Centre in Sydenham and saw a turnout of over 160 people, after ticket reservations sold out on Eventbrite.
Janz excellently compèred the night and introduced both powerful and thought-provoking acts. Performances from JJ, Niamh and Nike are just a small selection of the young people that took center stage alongside troupe ADC, who "tore up" the dance floor.

The media team for Youth Stories of Lewisham were also present on the night, interviewing the acts and creating exclusive content. The media team has been an awesome opportunity for local young people to learn valuable media skills such as interviewing, filming and video production. Over the course of the coming weeks they will continue to document and showcase positive stories of young people across the borough.
The showcase and media team were a collaboration with YOYO, an organisation that also trains young people in music production at recording studios in our youth club sites.
Following a vibrant show, the after-party ensued giving everyone the chance to show off their moves. A big thanks to all the acts, YOYO, staff and young people who made this great evening possible.
