We are delighted to welcome Norbrook Youth Club to our creating Carnival Programme to work with our artists to create a section of 20 giant silk flags as part of the Queens Platinum Jubilee. We will be visiting the youth club regularly to work with the young people. They will design and make this new work from silk, hand painting the designs using international textiles techniques. The young people will then join us at the parade on 5th June.
Norbrook Youth club is a multi purpose youth facility and community centre in Northern Moor, Wythenshawe. The club has been established in the community for over 60 years, since 1958 and offers weekly sessions for young people from the age of 6 to 18.

- A valued, recognised and respected provider of young people’s activities on a city wide and wider scale
- An exemplar organisation and delivery model that other community organisations seeks to emulate
- A driving force for improving outcomes for young people living in the community we serve
- Known for our passion, quality and effectiveness and to use our attributes to increase our activities and income streams
