Cirencester's Advent Festival

This is one of the highlights in the town's calendar.  The Christmas market opens, there is an afternoon of live music from local bands, wonderful carol singing with the Salvation Army, a blessing from Father Leonard and a "ho ho ho" from Father Christmas followed by the countdown to the lights being switched on. The Advent Festival is put on by the Town Council with the help of many volunteers. Volunteers are vital to the smooth running of the day.

Youth Town Council

We’re looking to re-establish a Youth Town Council in Cirencester and are on the hunt for engaging young people aged 11-18 to help us.

In previous years, the Youth Town Council helped design and set up a Youth Project called 'Ozone' this was originally a youth club but has developed into the Ozone Hub. Located at Kingshill Skate Park, it is a small tuck shop, which offers support to young people as well as giving the opportunity to volunteer their time to help at the shop or become involved in some of the projects we are working on.

Youth Town Council members were also the driving force behind the hugely successful Phoenix Festival and raised over £40,000 to make the event happen. Other projects have included the graffiti art on Kingshill Bridge, an art project with New Brewery Arts and more.
