In the run up to opening fully, Blackburn Youth Zone are running a number of trial openings with various schools and youth groups. Trial openings – or “soft openings” – are a chance to trial the building, the programme and to address any teething errors we may encounter. Our first trial opening will be on Monday 19th March, and will see The Youth Zone welcome up to fifty young people from local school Blakewater College.
Young people will be given guided tours around the building before exploring the various activities and sessions on offer. They will have the chance to try out the climbing wall, state-of-the-art gym and kickpitch. More structured sessions will be run in the form of street dancing in the fullsize dance studio and arts and crafts. For those who want to sample a more casual activity at The Youth Zone there will be the opportunity to show off their pool skills on our brand new pool tables.
We are running trial openings throughout the month and will be keeping you posted of everything that happens…!
