Young performers in Luton have been filmed performing a spoken word piece to be shown on screens at Radio 1’s Big Weekend.

Made in collaboration with BBC Three Counties Radio, We’re Proud of Luton features 15 young people from Next Generation Youth Theatre (NGYT) based in the town.

Words were written by the group to represent what they thought of the town and they were then filmed performing them around Luton.

The finished film will be played on large screens at the main stage and new music stage during the Stockwood Park festival.

It will also be played on displays throughout Luton as part of a partnership with Luton Council and Step Forward Luton.

David Lloyd, who founded NGYT with his wife Laura, said: “The opportunity to make a film for the BBC about Luton and shine a light on all that is good about their hometown is something the young creatives grabbed with both hands.”
