The Mix Hut opens in Needham Market to expand youth work

The Mix Hut is a new youth space based at Crowley Park in Needham Market run by The Mix's youth work team.

It will primarily be used for weekly open access youth work sessions for young people aged 11 to 19.

Following several years of detached youth work in the town on Friday evenings, as well as the launch of our café The Duck & Teapot, based at Needham Lake, we are excited to be able to expand what is on offer for young people in Needham Market.

We aim to provide a safe and inclusive space for young people in Needham Market, somewhere they can relax, socialise, engage in fun and enriching activities and to hear about other opportunities that they may wish to attend in their community. They will also be able to access support from our passionate team of youth workers and volunteers.

We have lots of facilities available at The Hut, including pool table, consoles, computers, kitchen facilities, quiet spaces and the outdoor space which includes the new Multi Use Games Area.

Initially The Hut will be open on Friday evenings and Tuesdays during the day, with an increased presence over the school holidays.

Opening times may vary so please follow our Instagram page for regular updates

If you would like to discuss what we can offer your child, or how we can work together, we would love to hear from you. You can reach our team by e-mail on –

We would also like to say a huge thank you to the town council and to the many local residents who have supported us in growing provision for young people in Needham Market.
