The most wonderful times of the year!
October to December is always a brilliant time of year for The Youthy and as usual 2018 was no different.
In October 2018, the Youthy was transformed into a spooky pumpkin patch ready for the Allstar and VIBE Halloween Parties. Our Youth United Stockton evening on a Thursday also got an extra special spooky treat; this was a Halloween walk of darkness and things that go bump in the night!
The young people do not only have their parties to look forward to, but the run up to these events were filled with some amazing activities including, making Spooky scarecrows for the parties. You can guarantee the Youthy staff has definitely got something brilliant up their sleeves for the events.
Once you walked up the stairs in the Youthy, you were transported to the Spooky Pumpkin patch, and Christmas was no different. The evenings leading up to Christmas were filled with magic as the Youthy was transformed into the greatest showman circus style. From the circus tents with a Christmas twist, it really is the greatest show and time of year.
The events usually last a week, with each session enjoying their own individual parties which include; party games like four corners and musical chairs, there is a feast prepared by the Youthy staff and there is also a Friday evening volunteer DJ Gavin. The special Christmas event would also not have been complete without a visit from Santa himself!
However, the spotlight of the Christmas event was stolen this year by our Youth United Stockton’s very own little starlet, Evie. Who with her spectacular voice shared some of her own performances of the hits from the Greatest Showman.

“It’s always a pleasure to put together such wonderful events throughout the year for our sessions, whether it’s beach parties, Halloween or Christmas. It always puts a smile on every young person’s face who walks through that door, as well as our own”
