The Sheerness County Youth Club and Activity Centre


Youth Clubs come in all shapes and sizes. Television often portrays them as run down scruffy places, where young people hang out, but in the '90s things have changed. They are now becoming high tech with up-to-date facilities to meet the needs of the modern teenager.

Our Centre in Sheerness is probably one of the best equipped Centres in Kent, with a warm friendly atmosphere where you will feel safe and be safe, where you will have a wide range of activites to choose from and the chance to meet other young people and make new friends.

Our staff team aim to provide you with the very best service. A place where you will be treated as an individual, not just one of the crowd.

We have members who joined at the age of 13 and stayed until 20!

No one stays 8 years at a Club unless it is good, and because we cater for older members the programme is professional with always something new to do. It is certainly not kids' stuff, but at the same time you don't have to be particularly good at anything to take part.


Words sound Good.

Photos look Good.

But you need to visit the Club to realise that it is Good.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Activity Plus

Age 12 to 20

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Evenings

The Activity Plus programme is the main centre programme. Each member chooses two activities on each evening they attend. We provide a wide choice from sporting activities to creative arts, so it should not be difficult for you to find two activities that you can enjoy.

To give you a chance to look around and settle in, you will not be expected to choose your two activities for two weeks.

Full details of activities can be found on this website.

'Radio Coastline' has its own studio with C.D. and record decks and mixer. The disco unit also has C.D. decks and mixer, with sound to light and rope lights.

Stage Mime

The idea of miming on stage was introduced to the Centre many years ago. This activity is very popular. Anyone can back a mimer on stage, gaining confidence, you can then move on to become a lead mimer.

The Centre has a make-up room with a wide range of costumes, also a stage with lighting and musical instruments. Rehearsals are held on a Wednesday evening and the best mime acts are performed on the Friday Entertainment Night, once a year 20 of the best acts are put together for the Annual Mime Show.


There are several dance sessions a week held in the Centre's dance studio. You can start with the basics and move into stage at the Friday Entertainment Night.

The Centre's annual Mime shows and the shows staged around the Island give opportunities for the keen dancers to present their polished performances in front of an audience.


The drama group meets once a week, acting out a range of exciting sketches and role play situations. Here's your chance to step into a different character and act out an imaginary scene.

The drama sessions can lead to all osrts of opportunities; like becoming a T.V. presenter on one of the many County T.V.programmes and the possibility of playing a role in a T.V. drama production.


Art is one of the more leisurely activities in the Centre. We provide you with a wide range of equipment in the art cupboard for sketching, etc. You can have your own art book and draw while you are waiting for another activity to start. Special art sessions are held which include: badge making/design/modelling/printing, etc..


The Centre has its own Video Unit called 'County Television Productions'. This unit provides the members of the Centre with a Television presentation every six weeks. This presentation is comprised of several programmes, each programme having its own presenters and camera crews, giving you the option of either presenting a programme or becoming part of the technical team. The Centre has a well equipped T.V. studio and editing facilities with regular training courses giving you the opportunity to obtain the skills of video production. We are also out and about on location making videos for the community and for the Centre.


The popular activity of Pool is available on most evenings and afternoon clubs. The Centre has two tables for Pool or Snooker. For the more experienced players we offer a green snooker card to play on the main table. You can take part in the pool ratings. This activity is included in the Centre's Championships.
