WHY? What's Happening for the Young festival

The Southbank Centre is again hosting the WHY? What's Happening for the Young festival, celebrating the rights of children.

There are going to be four days of talks, debates, performances and free participatory events and workshops all inspired by the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Between 22-25 October there will be singing and dance workshops, performances and discussions for families of all ages to join in.

Jacqueline Wilson, Michael Morpurgo and Cerrie Burnell will be discussing what makes a good childhood. There will also be a colourful protest parade and talks discussing everything from gender stereotypes and refugee children to what would happen if human rights were left in the hands of children.
