On Thursday 25th June 2015 we held our annual Young DaDaFest event to a sold out audience at the Everyman Theatre. We had 105 young people perform on the theme of Freedom, Barriers and Respect. It was a great evening enjoyed by all and we even had the Lord Mayor dancing. Below is a selection of photographs, quotes, tweets and the Young DaDa 2015 yearbook, coming shortly will be a short film of the event.
