Our Gym is a great way for young people to improve their mental and physical health. It also offers those over 18 the opportunity to use a City Centre Gym for just £10 a month.



Following the governments advice to the public which was issued on March 16th, 2020 it is with regret that we at OPEN youth trust are postponing all events, our gym, cafe and our youth service (including all afterschool clubs) until the end of April to safeguard our community and staff. 


This is of course a disappointing time for all our staff, guests to our venue and the young people that our organisation supports but we feel that this is the right decision to protect us all for the future. 


We are committed to supporting our community through this difficult time along with the young people our charity helps. This will be incredibly challenging with the reduced income from our events therefore we would ask that even if it is just a fraction of the ticket price, that our customers will take this opportunity to help support through donations.  


We ask for your patience while we work through these difficult times that face us all. Our main aim is to continue the good work of OPEN youth trust and to go from strength to strength after these concerning times have come to an end.  

Of course, we will keep you all updated with any future developments.
