The Bute Mills Drop-in exists to give young people in Luton a safe space to hang out after school, where they can build relationships with each other and find a sense of community.


Bute Mills Drop-in is back!

We are so excited to be able to re-open our after school drop-in from Tuesday 13th April 2021*, and can’t wait to see you! *(subject to change based on government guidelines)

Bute Mills Drop-in takes place every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during term time from 3.30pm-6pm for young people in school Years 9-13. It is a space to hang out, have fun, and take part in different games and activities. We will also be launching a Year 7-8 programme from September 2021 - watch this space!

Due to current government COVID-19 guidelines, on Drop-in’s immediate return there are a few restrictions that will be in place so it can run safely:

  • Young people will need to be assigned to fixed bubbles and given a specific time to attend
  • All staff and young people will need to wear face coverings
  • All staff and young people will need to follow social distancing guidelines
  • Dinner will be served in individual containers and will be eaten socially distanced

These restrictions will remain in place until further notice.


If you are a young person in Years 9-13 and would like to attend Bute Mills Drop-in from 13th April, you will need to sign-up below so that you can be assigned to a bubble. If you are not in an assigned bubble and turn up to Drop-in, you will not be able to enter. Bubbles will be assigned on a first come first served basis, and there are limited spaces.

Once you have signed up we will get in touch with your Parent/Carer to give you further safety information and to let you know when your bubble can attend Drop-in. These bubbles will be assigned as close to school bubbles as possible, and will also take into account friendship groups. If you have any questions or concerns about anything to do with Bute Mills Drop-in, please get in touch with Gemma Milligan at
