Brightlights Youth Festival comes to Aylesford
13 July 2011

Over an extended weekend, 1-4 July, Aylesford Priory in Kent hosted Brightlights, Britain's longest-running Catholic youth festival. Hundreds of young people came to enjoy live bands, times of worship, inspirational speakers, drama performances, and friendship with one another. Carmelite friars were involved in welcoming participants and running workshops. It is hoped that the festival will return to Aylesford in 2012.
