Since 2012, we have been honoured to host a Gala reception each year in the presence of the President of Creative Youth, HRH The Earl of Wessex, KG, GCVO, in aid of the charity Creative Youth, organisers of the International Youth Arts Festival.

Many of the young companies that Creative Youth mentors attend the dinner. This highly enjoyable night includes performances throughout the evening from some upcoming young talents, often including some that will be showcasing their work at that year’s IYAF.

2019 Gala Dinner
The 2019 Gala Dinner took place at Glenmore House in Surbiton in November 2019. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the event. There was a fantastic turn out and atmosphere, and we were treated to a night of phenomenal performances by some of our young artists.

We are very thankful to everyone who has donated Auction and Raffle prizes for this and other events. This support is invaluable and greatly appreciated.

Please let us know if you’d like to donate an experience or prize for any future fundraiser events by contacting Creative Youth on or by calling 020 8549 2120.
