Over a ten-year period Café Random provided a safe and welcoming environment and been a really busy place offering a social space and meeting area for young people in the area during school lunchtimes, after-school and evening youth sessions.
Accommodating a variety of activities and events including Halloween, Christmas, outdoor themed events as well as pool competitions, games, arts and craft computing and ICT, media and photography amongst others Cafe Random was also a nightclub, stage, cinema and even a campfire site!
During its tenure the venue has also hosted several corporate and community events organised and supported by young people and also for the benefit of the community. Several generations of young volunteers have helped to manage the part and provide refreshments to participants, learning hospitality and cooking skills.
The youth café has now formed part of our youth and community offer and been rebranded, check our new projects for info on existing programmes.
