Time to Shine Festival 2023 - Kibble: Specialist services & support for young people facing adversity
Posted: November 21, 2023

To mark the end of Care Experience week 2023, young people and staff at Kibble danced the night away at the highly anticipated Time to Shine Festival. 

The annual event run by Who Cares? Scotland, provides an opportunity for Scotland’s Care Experienced community and their friends to get together, celebrate and have fun.

This years Festival transported party-goers to glittering Hollywood and the world of cinema with the theme “Film Characters”. This cinematic theme was chosen by Who Cares? Scotland members, and its fair to say that young people across Kibble embraced the theme with gusto!  Among the film icons lining the red carpet from Kibble included ‘Daisy Duke’ from Dukes of Hazard, ‘Cassie’ from A Promising Young Woman, ‘Stitch’ from Disney’s Lilo and Stitch, and “Maverick” from Top Gun, to name a few.

The iconic celebrities were treated to an evening of dancing at a silent disco, a DJ, bucking bronco, a movie room playing Toy Story, a delicious street food stall and lots of party games from pass the parcel to musical statues.

When it came to the dancing, young people at Kibble did not hold back and were first on the dance floor throwing some shapes and entertaining fellow party goers. They also encouraged the younger children to get onto the stage and dance, showing them the moves and giving them the confidence to shine!

It was a fantastic evening and everyone was in high spirits. Events such as this provide a great opportunity for young people to meet new friends, come together and celebrate Care Experience week which seems to get bigger and better every year. Huge thanks to Who Cares? Scotland for organising another fantastic event, and to all the star-studded young people for their amazing costume efforts. We can’t wait to hear what next year’s theme will be!
