Our School's Festival is back!

Schools Festival will be taking place Wednesday 5th July – Thursday 6th July 2023.

Our theme for Schools Festival is ‘Sharing Stories around the World.’

We are looking for 6 Primary Schools to take part. The festival will culminate in a live performance as part of a wider, outdoor festival.

For Schools Festival, we will be celebrating the Japan Youth Exchange and wider relationship with Japan. Over the past 30 years, the exchange had seen people from both Japan and Flintshire Schools connect and travel to each country. We have started collating memories and stories of the exchange which can be viewed here.
