White Ribbon UK had a heavy presence at the Nice & Sleazy Music Festival this year in Morecambe. The festival is best known for Punk & Ska music but has one of the most diverse demographic in any UK music festival with attendance averaging 1,500 people.
Our ambassadors, Brian Mitchell, John Bolton & Tony Saunders ran a campaign stall in the main area, while the band, The White Ribbons performed on both the main stage & marquee stage, receiving a massive response, for their charismatic approach to the campaign message. The influence that music & musicians can have on young people cannot be understated, especially at these sort of events. Ambassadors invariably find themselves engaging young people in important conversations about being positive role-models in a society and culture which normalises violence against women.
