On Saturday the 15th of November join young participants from our Express Yourself programme at Ravensdale Rocks, a community concert put on by young people and hosted by The Samworth Church Academy.

The concert is being organised by ‘In Our Hands’, a programme teaching Mansfield’s school children about the Holocaust. The programme cobats hate crime and discrimination. ‘Ravensdale Rocks’ will promote acceptance and celebrate  difference.

Our Express Yourself participants are working with artist Stephen Jon to create a set of masks and puppets, which they will perform with at the event. On Sunday 12th October all the young people involved in the concert visited the National Holocaust Centre in Laxton, for a look round the museum and the chance to hear from a survivor of the Holocaust. Roses, like the one in the photo at the top of this post, are planted through the centre’s grounds. They represent the children who lost their lives to the atrocity.

White RosesFlower beds filled with one thousand white roses. They represent White Rose, a non-violent, intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany, made up of student, many of whom were executed for their opposition to Hitler’s regime.

You can get tickets Ravensdale Rocks by booking on Eventbrite or by ringing Mansfield CVS on 01623 651177. We will add more details about the programme once they are confirmed.
