What’s Next Southampton? was a FREE arts, fashion and music festival for children, young people and families.
Free activities and live music spread across Guildhall Square and Cultural Quarter venues on Saturday 24 June 2023.
The line-up was developed by our six Cultural Connectors, aged 17-26 years.
They explored what young people want in the city and teamed up with artists and organisations to create a colourful festival.
