Big Norfolk Holiday Fun provides hundreds of free activities for children and young people
13 July 2021
Bookings are now open for the Big Norfolk Holiday Fun, a programme of activities for 5-16 year olds across Norfolk.
After a successful Easter programme the Big Norfolk Holiday Fun is back for summer, for children eligible for means-tested free school meals. There’s a fantastic range of free activities for 5-16 year olds taking place during the holidays, with events across the county available to book online.
The sessions will include a variety of fun activities, including sports, music, arts and other exciting opportunities to learn and develop skills, alongside a free nutritious meal each day. Booking is on a first-come-first-serve basis, with limited spaces for many activities, so families should book soon to avoid disappointment.
John Fisher, Cabinet member for Children’s Services, said “The Big Norfolk Holiday Fun programme is full of exciting opportunities for children and families across Norfolk to get involved in so many different activities and events this summer. Sessions vary from sports to arts and crafts, wellbeing and science, and are taking place all over Norfolk.”
“With so many organisations involved in delivering exciting activities across the county, the programme is an exciting collaboration and will be a great opportunity for children and young people to make the most of the summer, make new friends and try out some new things.”
Families are encouraged to explore the wide range of activities available and book as soon as possible as spaces are limited for some of the activities.
Details of all the sessions available including how to register and book is given on the Active Norfolk website . Parents will need to register first to get their code to ensure the activities are all free of charge. A downloadable PDF is also available, and support is available for those who can’t book online.
This programme is provided as part of the government’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme and is being delivered across Norfolk by Norfolk County Council in partnership with Active Norfolk.
