Shakers is a new Youth Café situated in Askern, South Yorkshire, England.

It was designed by the young people themselves as a meeting place.

It fulfilled a deep seated need for face to face contact - something that is now becoming much lacking due to our modern world obsession with electronic communication.  

Welcome to the Shakers Youth Cafe website. Please come inside and take a look around. We hope you enjoy your visit.


Shakers is run mainly by volunteers including the young people themselves, who are drawn from the local community.

Our aim is to promote real “ownership” of the project and develop responsible citizens for the future.

Shakers was designed as a place for Young People aged between 10 and 18 to “chill” without pressure.

Lots of structured activities do take place, but they are initiated and led by the young people themselves.

The young people designed Shakers around the idea of a 1950’s Milkshake Bar.

We sell a variety of food and drink that appeals to their tastes especially milkshakes, which provided the inspiration for our name.


Shakers is now open on:

Monday evenings    5 - 8pm,

Tuesday evenings   5 - 8pm,

Thursday evenings  5 - 8pm

Monday  evenings is a DMBC Youth Club evening.




Shakers is supported by
Coalfields Regeneration Trust
