The Station, Bristol opened in October 2012 and is one of the most exciting new youth venues in the UK, transforming a Grade II listed Fire Station into a major youth hub. Every step of the build and design was consulted with by a team of young people called the Station Drivers. Combining high quality arts with youth services, this multi million pound myplace project offers young people of all ages and backgrounds a space to develop and create their own artistic work, find support with health and careers or just hang out with friends.
Help support their youth work by hiring their spaces! The facilities include a 600 (standing) capacity main performing space that is a great space for conferences, productions, gigs and events. Their classroom and other meeting rooms are perfect as break-out spaces or for meetings and training. There is a dance studio with sprung floors, bars and PA system. A music department including a recording studio, vocal booth, practice rooms, media suite and radio station with facilities to record live sessions from the performance spaces. And for those who want to relax there is a chill out space as well as a public cafe, The Kitchen, run by the YMCA trains young people on the job and serves excellent coffee, cakes and lunches and can cater your event if needed.
