Blue Hut

Places to go in Hoxton for young people will increase once the Blue Hut opens. After much hard work to ensure the continuation of youth provision in Hoxton and, after ongoing negotiation by the Blue Hut Steering Group, the doors of the new youth club was finally launched in March this year.

The event was well attended by local people who were finally able to see the fruits of alot of hard work. Since then however there have been ongoing challenges to get Peabody to open the club and the ball court for public use. Hackney Councillors, Council Officers and the Shoreditch Trust have been negotiating and a date of opening has finally been agreed. Peabody have finally given permission for the club to be opened at the end of this month.

This will mean more to do in Hoxton for young people.
