Youth 2000
Event Info
The Journey! We're all on a journey through life, we’re all moving somewhere, but where are we going? Life can be loud, busy, beautiful, tough, exciting, and more often than not, confusing. Perhaps that was why Jesus’ first interaction with humanity, in the gospel of John, was to ask a question. "What are you looking for?"

In Exodus, Moses wasn’t looking for anything until a radical encounter with God transformed his life, setting him on a journey that he could never have imagined.

When are you going to allow God to transform your life? Will you take that first step? Will you dare to begin?

Exodus 3

Join our growing family of young people from all over the U.K. (and the world!) and share in new experiences of praise music, dynamic speakers, and engaging workshops, all rooted in the essentials of the Catholic faith; the Mass, the Eucharist, Scripture and confession.


Youth 2000 helps young people answer some of the big questions of life, by offering the opportunity for a powerful and transforming encounter with God.


Supported by national and international church leaders, Youth 2000 is a member of CSAS - the national agency for safeguarding within the Catholic church in England and Wales. To request a copy of Youth 2000's safeguarding policy, please contact the National Office.

A 5-day outdoor Festival, including engaging international speakers, live music, workshops, discussions, prayer, sports, social times, evening entertainment and loads more.

Youth 2000 events are primarily for 16-30 year olds. However, we welcome people up to 35. We also welcome families and have a separate family camping field.
The cost is £100 per person. This covers marquee accommodation, all meals and entrance into the festival. The event is donation-only, so if you cannot pay the full amount we ask you to give what you can. If you can give more, this will help towards a place for someone else.
