It’s great to see that so many organisations are registered for Takeover Day 2014 and they can still register by visiting the Takeover Day page.

There are several free resources available to all organisations that have registered for Takeover Day 2014. They can be ordered from the same webpage.

To order free resources, the venue needs to register first.

Resources include:

  • Packs with stickers and certificates for all participants. There are different designs for under and over 11s
  • A2 posters for venues, to let people know you are taking part
  • A3 posters for youth groups and schools to promote their involvement

It’s also time to CELEBRATE the great things that young people will be getting up to at your venue.  There are some Press tips to get started and a Press Release Template which are available here.

From getting local media involved, to letting kids take over the venues publicity, there are loads of ways to let people know about events.
