The excitement is growing here in the Young Programme office. Next month we will welcome our first delegates since February last year. Like everyone else, we have been working at home, doing lots of crystal ball gazing about when we might get going again, and a little bit of thumb twiddling. But we are back and can't wait to welcome the Young Scotland Programme delegates to Dunblane in June. More information to follow.
After that, we will be heading to Lancaster for the 2021 Young Local Authority of the Year (24 to 26 August, click here for brochure and booking form).
Looking further ahead, our plans are:
Autumn Young Scotland Programme, Dunblane (28 September to 1 October, click here for brochure and booking form)
Autumn Young England and Wales Programme, Lancaster (26 to 29 October, information to follow)
2021 Young Ireland Programme, Dunblane (23 to 26 November, information to follow)
Meanwhile, we look back fondly on the 2020 events we managed to squeeze in before lockdown descended: the joint Young Ireland Programme/Young Scotland and Northern Ireland Programme back in January 2020 (click here for photos); and the Young England and Wales Programme in early February 2020 (click here for photos).
