Simple traditions

Post written by: Erin Walcon

Last year (2018) we held a Doorstep Halloween party. We hosted spooky fun activities for children under 11 for an hour like trick-or-treating, apple-bobbing, and face-painting, and then had a live music Open Mic for young people aged 11+ in the later part of the evening.

Based on popular demand, we decided to do it again in 2019. It was really excited to be teaming up with Winner Street neighbours Ocean Youth for a live broadcast too! Wahoo!

Here are a few gallery photos of the event – my favourite part was watching Doorstep Youth Theatre (aged 14-20) run their own Open Mic event, and deliver all the interactive games/stations for younger children. It was genuinely young-person-led.
