Workshops & Activities

Workshops and Activities at Velos Youth are aimed at providing a structured, creative and recreational atmosphere for young people.

  • Craft activities: painting, animation, crochet etc
  • Wide range of board games and video games available

As well as the regular activities and workshops run in-house at Velos, we host a variety of organisations and individuals who deliver further activities:
