Thank you so much for allowing us to use the youth club. It’s a great space and youth club kids are very lucky! 

Private hirer


Our premises consists of four hireable rooms; a main hall, a kitchen with basic facilities, a smaller back room, and our brand new wellbeing room. 

Our hall is available to hire by our members (e.g. for birthday parties) and for youth related activities.

Please note that we are constantly refurbishing the hall as time and money permits so some parts of the building have more of a wow factor than others.

FOYER

A warm welcome awaits.
Having left the free public parking area outside, we have step and disabled ramp access to the main door. The foyer is part carpeted for dirty shoes and packs a green punch to show the fun that can be had inside. Whilst this space is a main fire exit, it is possible to put a table here to use the space as a signing-in area if required. and still have space to get in and out.

MAIN HALL

A space for everything. 
Our large hall is bright with high windows at one end so the hall receives natural light during the day. It is also flooded with light and ideal for parties, activities, and games. To preserve our hall, no hard ball games or similar activities that could damage the ceiling tiles are allowed.

Three large heaters make this space toasty in the winter, and the toilets are easily accessed from this room. Electrical sockets are aplenty and the hall can be seen from the kitchen window (seen in the picture at the far end).

The table tennis, air hockey, and table football equipment is Youth Club property and ‘lives’ in this space, however it is possible to remove the table tennis and table football to another area if they are in the way, as long as they are replaced. They are not usually part of the hire agreement but please check with us.


THE HIVE

(Not currently available)

Unwind in our cosy cafe. 
Our small but inviting cafe features prints of London and New York and is a useful space for small meetings of about eight. With heating, a well stocked kitchen with sink, cooker, microwave, kettle, fridge, and toaster, it covers most needs. We have mugs and plates to suit small group hire.

Our servery area is ideal for events where you want to present a more professional look without everybody being in the kitchen. Too many cooks and all that…A bonus with the kitchen, as the hub of everything, is that one window looks to the main hall, another to the back room, so adults can keep tabs on everything that is happening from the one location.

THE HANGOUT

(Not currently available)


Good things come in small packages.
It may be small in comparison to the main hall but tucked away at the back of the building, the back room is our hidden gem. The purple and pink on the walls plus the heating make this a useful space for meetings, small group work, breakout space, cloakroom, somewhere to relax and unwind. You name it, it has happened. It is quite a busy room with the youth club resources but is spacious enough for a variety of needs. 

Back Room

THE HAVEN

(Not currently available)


Take a deep breath and relax (Opened April 2021).
Our former office is now The Haven, a relaxing, wellbeing space at the front of the building. It can be closed down from onlookers thanks to blinds. There’s heating, comfy seats, soft lighting, and music. The space will be ideal for therapists, counsellors, and we also have hireable resources to support sensory work.

Wellbeing Room
