CREATIVE teenagers put their artistic flair on show during a festival in the town.

Aftershock Scarborough, a mini version of the CultureShock Youth Arts Festival, took place over the weekend with scores of youngsters queueing up to sample a host of fun activities.

The event, in Burniston Road car park, saw dance duo The Squatters take centre stage on the musical front with a performance area also set aside for youngsters to showcase their talents to a live audience.

There was also graffiti art, DJing, manga and circus skills, with a Laser Quest and Water Walkers keeping the raft of people entertained throughout during the day.

A spokesperson said the festival had been a great success and had given youngsters a genuine opportunity to sample a range of fun activities for the first time.

She added there were hopes the festival could now become an annual event akin to the CultureShock Festival.
