Although it is still more than a year to go, our organising team have already been working hard to make the event something the young people and adults alike will remember, and today we officially launch our striking The Big Weekend 2024 brand.


We have worked closely with our junior organising team and other adult members across the county to curate The Big Weekend branding that you see today.

Sean Kelly, The Big Weekend 2024 event lead, said: “It’s been a real challenge to create a brand that resonates with our young people and adults.

“We are pleased with the branding for The Big Weekend, having worked in conjunction with a number of voices across the county, including all our excellent junior organising team. We hope it will really bring the event to life.”
