    Who doesn’t want their opinions to matter? Who wouldn’t like red-carpet treatment?

    The Children’s Choice Awards are an entirely fresh look at the Festival. A group of children from two schools in Tottenham are appointed the Official Festival Jury, and are chauffeured to and from festival shows to see the art, take notes, review, critique and vote. Subverting traditional jury structures, the children call the shots, and in their own Award Ceremony tell us what they think.


    “In the future, every child will be given a pair of scissors and invited to shape our destinies.”

    Darren O’Donnell, Mammalian Diving Reflex

    “We want them to go on to become tomorrow's artistic directors, producers and artists.”

    Erica Campagne - LIFT Senior Producer

    “LIFT 2016 will go down in history as the year the kids ran(sacked) the festival.”

    Presented by LIFT.
