Get the Kids Active this Summer!

We’ve got lots of activities happening at our facilities over the summer, so there’s no excuse for children to say they’re bored! From football sessions to fairy tales, there’s sure to be something to keep them entertained with Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles.

The popular SPACE scheme is back at our leisure centres and 5’s Football Pavilion with ‘Five Weeks of Fun’ for 8-17 years old. Swim, gym and football sessions are available from Monday 31 July – Sunday 3 September with the Space-Chase Pass, which costs £10 for the whole summer.

Theatre Summer School

This August, budding actors can take part in Sister Act – The Musical, the Prince of Wales’s summer school for 7-16 years old. Young people will get the chance to rehearse, perform and create memories that will last a lifetime. The sessions run from Monday 7 August to Friday 18 August 2023 (excluding weekends). Auditions take place 22 July. The two-week summer school costs £140 per child (discount for additional siblings). To book a place, please contact Ambient Night on 01543 467121.

Every Wednesday over the summer holidays, the Museum of Cannock Chase is running ‘Fairy Tales and Folklore’ themed craft sessions based on stories such as The Little Mermaid and Robin Hood.
