THE Cockburn Youth Centre will throw open its doors for a special celebration on December 1.

Eager to show off a refreshing new makeover, the open day will give local young people the chance to see what the youth centre has to offer, including drama, music recording, fantasy role-playing games, tabletop games, women’s boxing, mixed basketball and dodgeball.

Cockburn Youth Centre music teacher Freddie Mousavi said the recording studio was available to those aged under 24 wanting to jam, practice and record music.

“My aim is to create an environment where youngsters can share their musical ideas with each other and master their instruments while having heaps of fun at the same time,” he said.

Fellow teacher Tom Langridge said the centre’s free Next Big Thing music program every Thursday was a big hit among attendees.

“Basically you just need to rock up with your guitar and jam,” he said.

“We have a drum kit, keyboards, amps and microphones.”

The Cockburn Youth Centre open day is on December 1 from 10am to 2pm.
