This is the third time we are running it, having made further changes to enhance the experience

Multi-Activities from Monday 2nd to Friday 13th August is ideal for children aged 8 to 15 years old with a mixture of arts, drama, sports, swimming and much more. Chris says Multi-Activities is a great way to spend the summer. We have lots of fun, with children taking part in a variety of activities.
