We have a few exciting offers we want to highlight!

Newham summer programme

The Newham summer festival this year is quite unique to other years so please do take a moment to look at some of the key messages: Stay Connected, join in and have fun.

School holidays are here and Newham Council is partnering with agencies working with children and young people to deliver an exciting range of activities, for all age groups and abilities, seven days a week. Beginning on 21 July, they will take place at parks, other open spaces, the docks area, all in a safe, socially-distanced way, as well as virtual online spaces.

This coordinated offer is aimed at 0 to 25-year-olds and their families. Some activities will be targeted at vulnerable children and young people, some of whom may have Special Educational Needs, be at risk of being drawn into concerning behaviour or those who may have struggled during lockdown. View the programme and booking information here. For more information on the Newham activities please visit the webpage
