Why Kieran Fest?

The life of Kieran Crump Raiswell is to be commemorated at Kieran Fest, a series of events across Chorlton over the weekend of September 5-7.

Chorlton teenager Kieran was tragically murdered in an unprovoked knife attack in January 2013 and since then his parents have been working to raise money for the Manchester charity 42nd Street, which works with young people under stress.

Last year's Kieran Fest 2013 was a huge success and so far, with the help of friends and family, they have raised over £16,000 for the charity and hope that Kieran Fest 2014, as well as being a weekend of fun, will help to raise further funds. To donate, go to:

Kieran’s parents Roland Crump and Christine Raiswell have issued the following statement: “Following the horrible and difficult events relating to Kieran’s murder and the subsequent trial we decided to organise Kieran Fest as a positive way of remembering Kieran in a more enjoyable setting. We have worked closely with family, friends and the community to organise the events from 5-7 September. Proceeds from the events will again go to support 42nd Street in their work with young people in Greater Manchester. We look forward to welcoming everybody to Kieran Fest 2014.”
