Access All Areas is an art festival for young people aged between 13-19 and is the place to be if you are interested in the arts. Not only can you take part in a range of workshops from parkour to fashion design but you can also show off your talents in one of our performance evenings. If showing off is not your thing then come a watch other young people take to the stage as they showcase their talent. Here's the best bit, all workshops are FREE! Some workshops have limited numbers so booking is essential.

All workshops are FREE but for this year's Friday and Saturday nights will cost £4 a ticket or £7 for both. 


It's the last day of school before the Autumn break so celebrate with some workshops in the day followed by an evening launch party with DJ’s and VJ’s. Headlined by Radio1 favourite Riz MC, don't miss out on seeing this fantastic artist in action. Check out his Myspace. £4
