Attitude Festival 2021

June 2021

Attitude 2021 was the third, and by far the biggest, camping festival at SES to date.

The weather was superb and the mix of activities seemed to work really well, with something for all the young people.  Everyone had a fantastic time with plenty of things to get involved in, such as; live music, Forest School activities, festival make-up, crafts, drumming and a bouncy castle.  There was a plenty of food available and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the barbecue out in the sunshine.

To have all the young people from Avocet House, Turnstone House and Tower Hill taking part was a real achievement, resulting in a total of 21 tents pitched on the field.
