A team of young creatives will be taking over Windermere Jetty Museum with Forge Festival on Sunday.

Forge Festival is a day of original pop-up performance, dance and music created by young people, for young people. Taking place across the entire site of Windemere Jetty Museum, this is a chance to see the culmination of a four-month creative process led by The Knotted Project.

Diverse groups of young people aged 11-25 from across Cumbria have been working with professional artists to develop creative responses to the theme of ‘The Future Fight’.
