YOUNG people will pump up the volume at a youth culture event in Swan View on Saturday in the run up to a host of school holiday activities.

Blast off is at 1pm, with free live music, monster balls and sumo wrestling until 6pm.

Tell the Shaman, the runner-up in last year’s Battle of the Bands, is one of seven acts on stage throughout the afternoon.

Other attractions include a temporary tattoo stall at the Brown Park Oval event in Salisbury Road.

Swan Volume is part of Seen and Heard youth week events across Australia.

Swan View youth worker Rheannan Graham said Swan Volume provided a stage for local youth talent.

“There will be heaps of free and fun activities for the whole family and all this entertainment is absolutely free,” Ms Graham said.

Healthway and Propel Youth Arts WA are this year’s sponsors for the event delivered by Parkerville Children and Youth Care.

The Swan View Seen and Heard crew has an impressive list of activities to follow on during the school holiday break.

Youth workers will deliver their first Mystical Madness event on Tuesday, April 12 at Darlington Hall, from 1pm to 3pm.

A Colour Blast run is on the cards for Friday, April 15 at Wooroloo School Oval, from noon to 2pm.

Colour Blast is similar to Colour Run, where competitors complete activities while being covered in coloured powder.

Seen and Heard youth development officer Anabelle Kirouac suggested friends and families team up for the event.

A Girls Pamper Day for ages 10 and over is booked for Parkerville Hall on Monday, April 18, from 11am to 2pm, offering hairstyling, make-up and nail decorating.

To wind up the school break, the Australian Parkour Association will present an introductory Parkour workshop.

“Parkour can be defined as the movement from one spot to another in the quickest way possible, through running, climbing and jumping,” Ms Kirouac said.

The $5 workshop will take place at the Sculpture Park, Mundaring on Friday, April 22, from 10am to noon, and will include free pizza.
