At last year’s ceremony over 200 young people received a Vibe Award and young people from  Abbey Road School Choir, Acropolis – gymnastics group, Stagecoach and Hurworth Street Dance Group performed.

The aim of the Vibe Awards is to recognise all those young people who have made a significant achievement, progression or impact in their life.

  • Contribution to the Arts – 10 to 19 years
  • Achievement Against the Odds in Life – 10 to 19 years
  • Achievement Against the Odds in Learning – 10 to 19 years
