Youth Recreation in Yate

Yate Youth Cafe

Yate Town Council has provided amenities for the growing number of Yate teenagers. Peg Hill Skate Park is an example of this provision, as is the teenage seating at Long's Drive.

The Armadillo Youth Venue and Cafe

The Armadillo Youth Venue and Cafe in the heart of Yate provides a contemporary, safe environment for all young people of the locality aged between 11 and 17 to use, enjoy and call their own.

Named by local young people in recognition of its distinctive shape, and painted a vivid purple colour, the 200-capacity centre is designed to exacting environmental standards and offers high-quality facilities including a café with internet access, DJ Booth, pool table, basketball table tennis, x-box gaming area and a fantastic 60-seater cinema. Everyone aged 11-17yrs is welcome whether they want to chill out in the café, meet friends and make new ones, or take part in a workshop. They have weekly craft and cooking sessions!
