Boroughs United

Each year at the Hackney Empire Theatre, London’s liveliest youth talent showcase brings together 200 young performers and 1,000 families and friends, from across London’s 32 boroughs, in a peace campaign to end violence and to celebrate the positive contributions young people make to our society every day.


Boroughs United has been running since 1999 and has played sold-out shows to over 14,000 people at the Hackney Empire.  Over the years 2,500 young people who have taken part over the years includes Little Simz, Leona Lewis, Jermaine Jackman, Diversity and Twist & Pulse


The Mayor of London says,  “The Crib is doing excellent work with young people in Hackney… This exciting project can unleash the creative potential of youngsters in every borough across the city, helping them to raise their aspirations and to increase their confidence as performers.”
