Inbetweeners Teen Area

In a fantastic woodland location, the Inbetweeners’ Area (strictly for 12+ yrs) is ideal for teens who want to have a go at a whole range of music, digital, fashion, tech, media and music workshops.

Teens can use state of the art equipment to produce their own work, get hands-on experience and a chance to work alongside industry pros. Their work is available to take away and will be show-cased across a range of platforms. Some workshops are bookable on site, but we always keep places for walk-ups including for Day visitor. Please note many workshops have a fixed capacity.
