BYC IS CLOSING AFTER WEDNESDAY 28th OF FEBRUARY
We can now confirm that BYC will be closing in order to carry out the first stages of the large scale renovation work taking place to the building over the next 18 months.
Sessions will run as normal up to Wednesday 28th of February. This will be our last day in the current building.
We are sorry to have to announce this on such short notice. The moveout date was set by the builders at short notice in order to keep on the target completion date of summer 2025.
We are still working on moving to a temporary home in the city while the work is being done. Unfortunately securing a space has proved difficult with a number of sites falling through at the last minute. This means that we will unfortunately have a period with no skatepark. We of course are working hard to make this time as short as possible. If you think you can help with our rehousing quest please do get in touch!
BYC’s other youth facilities will be moving to a temporary site on Gloucester road in central Brighton. We will be running youth club and other activities there, as well as other events and activities around the city during this time. More on that to follow soon!
We’re extremely grateful to everyone who visits the centre over the years, and are sorry that it has come about this way. It definitely wasn’t the plan. This is an essential step in securing BYC’s future and allowing us to continue providing these services to young people in Brighton. We will of course keep you updated with any and all progress as we go through this change. Until then, if you didn’t hear it from us then feel free to ignore whatever it is.
BYC Skatepark is Brighton’s only indoor skate facility. The park is for skateboarding only, and is open to people of all ages and abilities.
The park features obstacles of varied sizes and difficulty to suit all levels. Skateboards and protective equipment are always available to use for free for those without their own!
Our popular tuition courses run throughout the year and have helped hundreds of children and adults to start skateboarding.
