Escape the neon lights of rainy 1940s Belfast and celebrate all the YMCA has to offer. From the impressive gymnastic displays to the quiet of the reading room, you will be spoilt for choice. Will you exercise your grey matter by learning a native language with the Gaelic Fellowship, discover the darkroom arts or tinker with wires at the radio club? As the cinema club thread up their projector a blaze of colour bursts forth along with more recreational pleasures at Bladon Drive.
