Music and Media Youth Club for young carers and siblings in Suffolk aged 13-17*

We are running a 10-week pilot project at The Smokehouse for young carers and siblings starting on Wednesday 22nd from 5-7pm. We're setting up a safe, creative and fun space for you to make your own.

Come down, and have PS4 competitions, table football tournaments, learn music and radio production with the opportunity to create your own radio show playing the music YOU love! You're also more then welcome just to relax, chill out, listen to music and socialise. It's a great way to meet like-minded people and make new friends. 

Oh, and there's FREE food for you folks too! What's not to love?

Use our sign up form below to register and we very much look forward to seeing you soon!.

*18 year olds are allowed as staff volunteers!
