About the Venue
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!

Reopening the Venue
We are excited to announce that from 15th September 2020, we reopened our yr6 youth sessions, welcoming back young people to our “new normal”.
We have carefully consulted Government guidance, sought advice from leading youth organisations and consulted with union representatives to inform our reopening plans. When we have devised the yr6 timetable, we will advise and update parents and schools on how we are minimising risk.
Thank you for your patience and support and we hope to see you soon!
