BANDS rocked Darlington town centre last night with an al-fresco finale to a two-day event for young people.

A music concert took place in the Market Square, featuring local bands Buzzkill, Output, 2 Many Units and Salmon J' Kets.

The concert was organised by Darlington Borough Council, with help from The Forum music centre, in Borough Road, Darlington, to mark the end of Yo-Yo - Your Offer Your Opportunities.

Yo-Yo was arranged by the council to show young people what activities are available to them.

Earlier in the week, youngsters aged 13 to 19 had the opportunity to try sports including netball, basketball and boccia as well as dance classes, an outdoor skating rink and a climbing wall.

Activities took place in the Market Place and the Dolphin Centre.

Youth organisations also talked to young people about their work.

The event also gave young people the opportunity to tell the council's youth service what kind of events they would like to see provided in the future.
