The Kids Are Alright

Flyer for charity concert

Flyer for charity concert

Apparently half the population thinks that children in the UK behave like animals.  To give a bit of balance, here are three groups of youngsters who show that the ‘feral’ stereotype is not applicable:

  1. The group of Crawley school pupils who have organised this charity concert in aid of Great Ormond Street hospital.
  2. The young musicians who will be playing at the concert
  3. The audience who will (I hope) turn up to support the cause

Full details are:

CYG are holding an Under 18s Charity Gig in Bar Med on Sunday 30th November, 6-10pm. Raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital, it promises to be a fantastic night, and a chance for Crawley’s brightest up-and-coming music talent to play to a crowd of teenagers in one of the town’s most exclusive venues. This event has been highly anticipated for some time, and word is spreading fast!

84mm, Scrappy MC, and Smile from a Stranger are all from local schools here in Crawley, and tipped to have promising futures. There will also be a DJ on the night, and all profits will be going to a great cause. Aisleen Byrne (16) and Nona Buckley-Irvine (15), from Oriel High School in Maidenbower, are the driving force behind what has been quoted as being Crawley’s event of the year!

£5 entry, with tickets available on the door. Alternatively, advanced tickets can be purchased. For more details text CHARITY to 07950 219628.

Don’t miss out, and we hope to see you there (if you’re Under 18…)!

    The article I was reading suggested that maybe explaining what the word ‘feral’ meant might have altered the way some people answered… The worst bit is that the whole survey has, largely, been taken out of context and the 90-odd% of kids who are friendly, open and very non-threatening (even if they are noisy, boisterous and, sometimes, unintelligible) will be made to feel alien and dangerous. As if being a teenager isn’t hard enough…
