Introduction

 

JusB is a community-based youth centre that works with young people during their journey to independence, helping them to make the most of their potential. Over our ten years we have worked with thousands of young people. We are a thriving club in the heart of the Bromley area, which is fast becoming a vibrant and diverse community. Our vision ‘A Brighter future for young people in Bromley’ is even more relevant in today’s environment, as many young people and families struggle to cope in difficult times.

 

Through the year we strive to offer young people a variety of activities which will enable them to be better equipped for life's journey


We are appreciative of everyone who supports us in so many ways ... those who offer hours of volunteering and those who support us financially ... we could not continue without them and for this we are extremely grateful.

 

 

On behalf of the young people that we work with ...

THANK YOU.

Picnic at Hanging Rock

Tickets £10

Based on Joan Lindsay's iconic novel ... in 1900, during a trip to a beauty spot in rural Australia, three schoolgirls and their teacher inexplicably vanish. Five female narrators attempt to reconstruct the mystery, but their efforts are overtaken by primal forces, taking us from civilisation to somewhere hostile, vast and unknown… A sublimely unsettling theatrical experience that sends shivers down the spine.
