Jump Studios

Experiment with new technologies, develop your skills as a leader or media-maker, and enjoy being creative. Jump in!

Jump Studios is Knowle West Media Centre’s programme for 10 – 30 year olds. We offer a range of after-school groups, creative courses, work experience, training opportunities and holiday activities. We also get paid work for our Emerging Creatives via our Creative Agency Eight.

After School Activities

We aim to run all after-school programmes in person at Knowle West Media Centre from 19 April 2021, in line with government social distancing guidelines. We will also be offering a semi-virtual option for young people unable to attend an in person session.

Group sizes are considerably smaller than usual due to COVID-19 restrictions. You will only be able to book one activity per young person per week. Block booking is essential so please make sure you choose a night of the week that you are available throughout the term.

You can register your interest via our online form.
