Newtownards Summer Flash Mob

Conway Square in Newtownards was the venue as 200 children joined together in a flashmob on 7th August to raise awareness of the effects of single-use plastics. Our artistic director Mags Byrne worked alongside dance artist Ciarán Grey delivering a series of workshops in the run-up to the event.

During the 20-minute performance, the children filled the square with protest chants and dance. They were joined by BEATNDRUM Samba Band and Professor Plastic Not Fantastic in highlighting key plastic pollution facts and figures.

This event was part of Ards and North Down Borough Council’s summer scheme programme and funded by the council’s Recycling Community Investment Fund (RCIF).
