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.

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!
