Children and young people across Barking and Dagenham are set for a range of activities across the borough over the six-week holiday period.

The council has lined up a range of activities in the parks, libraries, museums, youth, leisure and children centres.

In addition, a full programme of multisport, basketball and cricket roadshows will be taking place in the parks. Attendance at the roadshows is free of charge but you will need to register before coming –

Most sports and physical activity sessions are £2 a session unless previously indicated. Bookings for these sessions will need to be made on Eventbrite using the links

Councillor Maureen Worby, Cabinet Member for Social Care and Health Integration said: ”We know that the holiday period is a time when parents are keen for their young ones to have activities to keep them occupied, so we have laid on a number of activities for the borough’s children and young people.

“Whether you are interested in futsal, healthy eating, cheerleading, cooking, karate, rugby or dance, there is something for everyone.”
