Wicked Weekend

THE first ever Wicked Weekend, an exciting two day youth festival, was held over the 25 August 2007 and 26 August 2007 on Princes Park Southport. 

The event was hailed as a huge success attracting young people from all over Merseyside to the event that had a mobile skate park, with free tuition from Team Extreme, BMX ramps, inline skating demonstrations, five-a-side football thanks to Southport FC.  A climbing wall, street dancers of all ages, funfair, a graffiti wall, as well as other side shows and events.

The event also was a huge attraction thanks to it offering local bands the chance to play and show off  their talent and play live to their friends and families on an open air stage. 

But best off all... yes all this was FREE!

The event  was organised by Sefton MBC's Youth Services, Arcade Sports, The Champion, Merseyside Police and a group of youths. 

Congratulations to all involved in this event.  It is fantastic to see so many young people having fun and showing that they have some thing to offer the community.  

We hope to see this run again next year!
