"For young people, by young people"

About Myplace

Myplace is a state-of-the art £4.3 million venue and activity centre for young people in Middlesbrough. It has amazing facilities and opportunities for young people including a theatre, TV and recording studio, internet café, alcohol free nightclub, sensory room, and amphitheatre. A large number of support services are based at Myplace, all of which are dedicated to improving the lives of young people. Myplace also works closely with children and young people through primary and secondary schools. The building was officially opened on 30 June 2012.

Myplace is your place

Everything from the modern, colourful interior to the range of activities, leisure and support on offer, has been decided by the young people for the young people. From the initial grant application to the doors opening, a group of over 800 young people have been involved with every decision - and you can get involved too!

Myplace is open to everyone aged 11 to 19 years (or up to 25 with special needs).

There are many ways in which you can enjoy Myplace, it's up to you!

  • Pop down for a coffee or game of pool with some friends
  • See what's going on, or sign up for a future event, activity or group
  • Check job vacancies, volunteering, training courses or get confidential advice, information or guidance from a range of services

Becoming a member of Myplace is completely free. We have planned activities which you can take part in for only £1 per session. There are mixed ability sessions for all on Thursday nights from 5pm to 6:45pm (11 to 24 years) and 7pm to 8:45pm (18 years and over).
