Our long time supporter, Mrs. Naomi Long MEP was guest of honour at our recent festival. Naomi has been a great advocate for the work of Youth Lyric and was full of praise for the work of our charity and in particular the skills demonstrated in performance by our very talented students!
Naomi received a gift of Belfast Crystal engraved with the Youth Lyric logo from Siún and Aislinn and is also pictured with students, staff and our festival adjudicators Aileen Browne and William Scott.
Our fabulous administrator Rachel Robinson recently attended a dinner honouring Speaker of the House of Commons Mr. John Bercow MP. Rachel was delighted to present Mr. Bercow with a personalised Youth Lyric hoodie!
We are really looking forward to our festivals on 1st and 8th June at CFC 10 Belmont Road. Students are reminded to arrive one hour before the festival starts. On arrival please only use the Holywood Road entrance, unless a disabled access is required, in which case please call us on 07710618289 and Rachel will meet you at the Belmont Road entrance.
