Bollo Brook Youth Centre
We've moved! Bollo's new home is now on Strafford Road, just off Bollo Bridge Road. Come and see our wonderful new premises!
Bollo Brook Youth Centre is a place for you to hang out with friends, take part in fun activities, including music production, arts and crafts, sports, cooking and gardening, and get support and advice. At Bollo Brook you’ll learn new skills, make new friends and have fun.
Our full programme is here. Currently we offer:
27 hours a week of music studio projects, where you can work with professional studio engineers and producers, Reuben G and Fumez the Engineer. This runs Monday - Friday.
Support looking for education or employment with our in-house Connexions PA, Brian, on Tuesdays, 2-6pm.
Art projects, from mosaics to graffiti and everything in between, with our art tutor Yasmin, on Mondays, 4-9pm.
Vocal coaching with Fiona on Tuesdays and Wedesdays, 4-9pm.
We also run regular projects, including film-making, dance, vocal coaching, poetry writing, cooking and debates. Some of these are planned, some spontaneous, so it's always best to contact us to see if we have something coming up for you.
Here is a track made in our studio, with the video made with cinematographer Joseph Gainsborough at the youth centre:
The majority of our programme runs on a drop-in basis - just turn up and take part. However, if you want to check availibilty on any particular project or book a slot in the music studio or with a Connexions PA, contact us here or on one of the numbers below. If you have any ideas for projects you would like to take part in or run, just let us know and we'll see what we can do!
At the weekends, the youth centre is used by a number of community groups, including the Royal Society for Blind Children and local youth-led group Acton Youth Association.
