A true celebration of young talent

Following the success of the past 8 years, Gifted Young Gravesham (run by The Gr@nd) returned the Woodville Halls Theatre, Gravesend for the 9th time. Celebrating the amazing talent of the young people locally.

During the past 9 years more than 1,000 young people ranging from 11-19 years old have been involved in this amazing event. From singers to pianists, and photographers to technicians. They all have a platform here, to expand and improve their skills.

Developed in partnership with the local schools, GYG works with the young people. To not only improve on their skills but they also help with self esteem, anxiety and self confidence. The whole project culminates in a one show spectacular to a sold out audience.

SA Events were proud to be involved in this amazing event. Working with the young people before the event as well as securing the technical production contract for the event itself.


Here are just a few of the amazing acts that performed. Please click on the images to enlarge them:

Gifted Young Gravesham

This was like no other theatre show; with pyrotechnic effects, aerial hoops, flying and much more. Creating a truly spectacular event.

The deployment of over 24 Clay Paky, 24 DTS and 12 Prolight fixtures to create a amazing lighting show to match the talent on display.

Supporting the event was former GYG performer, and now international star “kwaye” signed with LA record label “Solar”.

The whole event was an absolute success with amazing feedback from audience and everyone involved. Well done team.

It has been fantastic for Create Festival to be working with and building a relationship with SA Events. Their hard work on and off site, from preparation to delivery has always been strong. The quality of their work and systems has allowed the festival to grow in reputation with both artists and audiences alike

Chris Dixon, Festival Director at Create

We have used the team at SA events for our productions over the last 3 years, throughout that time their level of service has been second to none. They are always on hand to lend expert advice with all technical aspects of our productions. Having provided the highest standards theteam at SA Events have enabled us to produce better quality productions with professional standards. This give our students a better level of understanding and development and in turn means our audience's get a greater experience and enjoyment. Our House in August 2019 would never have been the show it was without Dan's expert knowledge and commitment to making our band sound as amazing as they did! Thank you, we look forward too many more years of working together.
