February Half Term at Orange Box

19/02/2018

Orange Box young people’s centre will be hosting free half term activities over the school holiday for ages 11 – 19 years. Activities will run from Monday 19 February to Thursday 22 February 2pm – 4pm and Friday 23 February 2pm – 6pm.
There will also be open access to our recording studio 10am – 4pm throughout the week as part of the Orange Box Anti-Bullying Campaign
No need to book, just turn up!

Create something stylish to wear, upcycle furniture, show your talents on our open mic stage, sing karaoke, be creative with arts and crafts, climb the bouldering tunnel, play table tennis, cook healthy meals and skate in the rooftop skate park. In addition to our activities running 2pm - 4 pm there will be open access to our recording studio as part of the Orange Box anti-bullying campaign. If you'd like to express your experiences and thoughts of bullying creatively, either through singing, rap, spoken word or instrumentation (drums, guitar, bass and keys provided or you can bring your own – all instruments welcome) then join us in the studio between 10am – 4pm during half term week. We will then put this together to make a collaborative track about bullying to help raise awareness in preparation for National Bullying Week held on the 12-16th of November.
Don’t forget our end of week celebration on Friday 4pm – 6pm with a DJ dance party and live performances!
No need to book, just turn up - you will need to register when you arrive (with parent or carer if under 16) if you haven't already, or you can fill out a registration form here and bring it with you when you come.
For more information call 01422 433200 or email hello@orangeboxhalifax.org
