B.Y.A.C Youth Club

B.Y.A.C Youth Club

BYAC is based at the Charles Dickens Activity Centre, Lake Road, Portsmouth, PO1 4DY. There’s activities to suit all tastes! Get suited and booted for our fun take on Goodwood racers, prizes for best dressed and most creative hair piece or hat!

There’s a friendly water fight to cool you off in the summer evenings! Bring a t-shirt and try tie dying, or play our annual Bingo Burger evenings! Alternatively, chill out, enjoy a game of pool or meet new friends, we’re here to offer fun, advice and support, and it’s all free! Most sessions are for young people from school year 7 to 19 years of age.

From the week commencing 17th May 2021, we are reopening the youth service in line with the latest government guidelines. 

All young people who wish to have voluntary access will need to take a lateral flow test on arrival to enter the youth provision.

Over 18s can attend the youth sites as part of a ‘support group’. 



There’s plenty on offer including:

Rant Music Studio
Dance Studio
Offsite activities
Bingo Burger Night
Arts & Craft
Board Games
