Watford Borough Council is relaunching its free programme of summer activities for children and young people aged from five to 15.
The Wat’s On programme runs from Wednesday 29 July to Friday 28 August at various locations throughout the town.
There’ll be a range of activities to enjoy, including drama workshops, dance academy, singing and stage school. Children can also let their imagination guide them on different adventures, from saving the world as a superhero to Wild West fun.
For more active children, there’ll be plenty of sports to take part in, or they can let their creativity shine through arts and craft sessions. All activities will take place in parks, open spaces and some indoor locations across Watford.
Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “We are relaunching our free summer activities programme for children and young people because it’s vital that we do all that we can to support their mental health and physical wellbeing.
With schools being shut for many months, this still remains a challenging time for many and I hope these free activities are a big help to local families over the school holidays. This rich and varied programme gives them all a chance to experience something new and exciting during this tough and uncertain time.”
Measures will be put in place to protect children, young people and the team delivering the activities. The number of participants may be lowered and social distancing measures will be put in place. Sessions may also be live streamed through Zoom and Facebook Live so participants can take part from the comfort of their own home.
Booking is now open at watson.events. Visit the website for a full list of the programme, dates and times. You can also follow Watford Council on Facebook and Twitter to keep up-to-date with the activities programme.
