On Saturday 30th April, Afflecks hosted its annual event ‘Afflecks Day’. This year saw a circus theme with special performances from Circus Maximus, the fresh new circus and street arts group www.circus-maximus.co.uk Team Afflecks got in to the spirit by dressing up as clowns and circus animals!
We had live acoustic performances, live art created by local artists Daryl, Benjamin Murphy & Ben Gallagher, Tarot Readings, a Tombola, Ghosts in the Machine hosted back to back 3 minute theatre performances and there were some fantastic Dancers in the window at Cyberdog. There was a great buzz about the place with over 6000 visitors on the day.
We also raised just over £1000 for our nominated charity OnSide, OnSide aims to give underprivilaged young people something to do and someone to talk to; to inspire them to lead healthier and more positive lives and raise their aspirations so that they may grow to become happy, caring and responsible citizens.
OnSide’s vision is to build, deliver and sustain a network of 21st century youth centres across the North West which will give young people top quality, safe and affordable places to go in their leisure time.<< Back to Blog
