State-of-the-art centre opens for young people (NCC release)
The opening of a state of the art facility in the heart of the city gives Nottingham's youth a place they can proudly call their own.
NGY myplace officially opens on Tuesday 10 April. It is one of four youth facilities across the East Midlands which has benefited from £20m funding as part of the national myplace Programme.
Over £5m has been invested to transform the derelict Grade II listed building located on Castle Gate into a modern, welcoming and creative space designed by young people for young people.
Having undergone substantial restoration and renovation, the NGY myplace now boasts a café, fitness suite, dance and recording studios over five floors.
Open seven days a week, the centre will offer youngsters aged 13-19 a wide range of activities from music and film production, to dance, fitness sessions, courses, health and wellbeing support and somewhere just to meet friends, relax and talk to youth workers.
The centre also brings together a number of private, voluntary and statutory bodies offering a one-stop-shop where young people can access support and advice on employment and training, health and housing issues.
