Awkward Age event

This June, Spark London hosted London’s longest running storytelling night for a special evening of honest stories told by you, the audience. We were laughing, cringing and crying as we looked back on our seriously awkward teenage years together.

As part of our Seriously Awkward campaign for vulnerable 16 and 17 year olds, the theme for the night was ‘Awkward Age’. 

It’s hard to know what life’s like for older teenagers today. Remember what it was like for you then: did you feel like an adult or a child? Could you stand on your own two feet or were you nervous about facing the adult world? Did you keep a teenage diary? What did you enjoy? What did you regret? Did you find yourself in harm’s way? These aren’t easy questions, and the answers can sometimes be seriously awkward.  

We want to give a huge thank you to everyone who shared their stories and supported our Seriously Awkward campaign to improve life for vulnerable 16 and 17 year olds, because no child should feel alone, whatever their age.
