Each year we provided over 300 young people with over 2500 sessions in music and arts.

With weekly art & design, sound & lighting and guitar & drums session, monthly gigs and 6 weekly gallery art exhibitions, and one off projects exploring everything from mental health and World War One through performance art.

So many of our members have moved on to further education focusing on music and music technology and most are still performing regularly on the local or wider music scene.
We are still here for you!

We still have Rehearsal rooms and Recording opportunities - look on AAA Records tab for latest information.
Thanks for all your support and creativity- you still own this space so keep your ideas coming.

Documentary on Access All Areas by Sean Dyas




A Documentary film created by Edge Hill University Students, Sean Dyas, Adam Jennings, Kaine Ranjbar and Alyshia Riley.

The film covers Access All Areas a community youth project in Widnes.

With help from Studio members Tony Reilly, Stephen Cole, Genevieve Baker and Stuart Brown, the film introduces the project and the space, going into detail about how they not only facilitate but also   support and help the people who try and help improve the skills of the people who come, if that is what they are interest in doing. Otherwise they explain how it is also a safe place that young people can come to if they so wish.

The Documentary follow's CeReal, a band who frequently uses the studio, who explain the reason why they chose to come to the Studio, how the support workers have helped them progress as musicians and how important the studio is in their lives.

Having been through a similar background, the rapport become apparent and as we see the both Stephen Cole and CeReal bands member and what each have to say about the other.

The Documentary ends on a poignant note as Stuart Brown describes the situation with the funding at the moment. But you'll have to watch that to find out.
