The first event will be held during the February half-term on Tuesday 16th running between 7-11pm at Brighton’s new community hub, The Brighton Synergy Centre located on West Street, BN1 2RA. The venue has been transformed from a former run down nightclub and is run by a core team of volunteers offering experience and training to the community to help develop the centre to ensue it responds to the needs of the community. The Centre’s aim is to use profits from weekend events to cross-subsidise mid-week workshops, charitable activities and community outreach programmes such as Style.Style is a new event exclusively run for 14-17 year olds held during the school holidays and half-terms. Providing a safe, secure environment with unlimited soft drinks, two rooms of Djs, music and outreach for young people to engage with wider opportunities in the youth arts and active citizenship sectors.
Brighton Youth Centre have been fundraising for a new much needed skate park – and even though they have hundreds of visitors each week they are still short of the monies needed for this important project. By holding their own events and through crowd funding and donations they have already raised over half of the £20,000 needed and plan to start the build in April 2016. They welcome support and anyone who wants to find out more or get involved are advised to contact Liam and Mike at BYC (details). A portion of the monies raised from Style will go directly to help fund this much needed community project. Style also has plans in the pipeline for future youth engagement projects across the City.
Only 420 are available on the door priced at £6 including unlimited soft drinks. There will be fully licenced security on hand, a welfare room in conjunction with Safe Space and The YMCA and there is no admission after 9pm. We advise arriving early to avoid disappointment, as capacity is limited. We will be opening our doors at 7; however we will allow queuing from 6:45 pm to ensure that everyone can get in
