On behalf of Eden Court, Highland Alcohol and Drug Partnership, Highlife Highland and partners, we're delighted to share information about NORTHERN STARS – a brand new schools performance challenge in March 2020.
Following the news that Rock Challenge 2020 had been cancelled across the UK, and recognising that many schools and hundreds of young people across the Highlands would have already started to prepare, we felt compelled to take action to offer an alternative.

We know there’s likely to be lots of questions about the performance piece and the rules relating to it – we hope to share this during the first Schools Information Drop - week beginning 18th November.
We intend to expand the judging for NORTHERN STARS so that the efforts put in during the rehearsal process are rewarded as well, judging will be based on more than the final performance. We will also visit each school twice during the rehearsals period.
The participation fee remains similar – but rolled into this we have allowed for the filming and edit of the performance piece and each school will receive a copy of this at no additional charge.
Enjoy the school holidays, and we’re looking forward to getting started after the October break.
