“Being included in the production of events, such as ‘The Takeover’ gives you a lot of confidence and great transferable skills for the world of work. Also it’s lots of fun!”

For 14-21 year olds (disabled young people up to 24 years old) who are passionate about the folk arts.
The Youth Forum will meet regularly at Cecil Sharp House and at additional special events.
The EFDSS Youth Forum is searching for great folk bands, ensembles and solo artists to join with the London Youth Folk Ensemble and play at The Takeover, our flagship youth-led event on Sunday 9 July 2017. If you're aged 12-19 and play folk music, we want to hear from you! Deadline for applications is 17 February.
In November 2016 the Youth Forum organised their first Youth Ceilidh at Cecil Sharp House. Read Rowan's piece about the event.
Membership of the Youth Forum is free but places are limited.
