SummerFest 2015 is a six week summer programme designed to offer young people, aged three to 18, with a host of creative activities such as music, dance, comedy and drama.

Attracting young people from across the Renfrewshire and Glasgow area, SummerFest students are encouraged to to take part in a number of wide ranging performances including Mario and friends, A midsummer night’s dream, Never been to Neverland and brand new musical Stardust.

For its preschool students, weekly drama workshops lead up to live performances at The Wynd Centre Auditorium and Paisley Arts Centre.

A major factor which stands PACE out from the crowd is all its performances only every include young people, many as young as three.

David Wallace, PACE’s Executive Director said, “This year’s SummerFest will showcase over 30 performances and will be watched by an expected 4,000 people. All of this in just six weeks, will no-doubt make 2015 our most exciting summer festival to date.”

Mhairi Gilbert PACE’s Artistic Director said, “SummerFest offers thousands of young people the opportunity to take part in art projects, which not only teaches invaluable life skills such as confidence and communication, it also provides a fantastic platform to meet new people and have a summer they will never forget.”
