Rock Challenge

Humberside Police brought Rock Challenge to the region 18 years ago as an international performing arts competition for schools and colleges, focusing on driving home positive messages about substance misuse and crime prevention by educating young people how to stay safe and be more resilient through the competition.

This year alone, 50 schools, colleges, youth groups and alternative learning provisions are part of the Humberside Police Rock Challenge.  The event captures the imagination of young people giving more local youngsters the opportunity to experience the buzz and excitement of performing in a professional venue in front of their peers, families and friends whilst raising their confidence and aspirations.

We challenge each group to create an 8 minute dance/drama performance based on a theme affecting young people, set to contemporary music.  The young people take responsibility for choreography, set design, lighting, costumes and hair and make-up with amazing results.
