FREE Half Term Activities at Orange Box Young People’s Centre

Orange Box young people’s centre will be hosting free Half Term activities over the school holiday for ages 13 – 19 years. Activities will run from Tuesday 29 May to Friday 1 June, 2:00pm–4:00pm.

This Summer Half Term activities will be taking on a health and well-being theme, chosen by our young people. This time there will be a particular focus on the negative effects of gang culture and crime explored through Drama.

Enjoy the art and design sessions for mood boost and release your inner interior designer by upcycling a piece of furniture!

You will also have the opportunity to create something stylish to wear, show your talents on our open mic stage, sing karaoke, climb the bouldering tunnel, play table tennis and pool, skate in the rooftop skate park and try our drama workshops.

There will also be access to Youth Works drop-in which is a safe space for young people aged 13-25 to come along, ‘chill out’, listen to music, access the internet or have a brew.
The drop-in is always staffed by youth workers who can offer advice, information, support or guidance on the whole range of issues that affect young people.
The drop in is open weekdays from 3:30pm-5:45pm.

No need to book, just turn up – you will need to register when you arrive (with parent or carer if under 16) if you haven’t already, or you can fill out a registration form here and bring it with you when you come.
