Ready, set, go for fun!
Parents looking for ways to keep their kids busy over the school
holidays are spoilt for choice with the super selection of summer
events and activities on offer in
this year’s Go for Fun programme.
The programme has been put together by Bromsgrove District Council,
especially for kids and has a variety of activities for various
different age groups. Just some of the activities taking place
include gymnastics workshops, ‘Startrack Athletics’ schemes with
qualified coaches and the Dolphin Centre's ‘Fundayz’, in
partnership with Wychavon Leisure, which provide a variety of
activities for younger children to develop their fundamental skills
and older children to take part in sports and team based
activities. The Go for Fun programme also includes creative
activities such as drumming workshops, Dance in the Park and Big
Art in the Park.
There are also several family-friendly events such as the Family
Fun Festival at the Artrix taking place on various occasions during
August, the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony at Sanders Park on
Friday 27th July and six fantastic fun-filled days of Street
Theatre throughout Bromsgrove district during August.
Cllr Webb, whose portfolio covers Leisure and Cultural
Services, said: “Often parents don’t know how to keep
their children entertained over the six week holiday period and the
Go for Fun programme is a great way to allow kids to have fun, keep
fit, make friends and immerse themselves in both the usual
activities, such as football and gymnastics, and activities with a
difference like the circus skills and games workshops. There is
something for everyone - even the adults - and I think it’s safe to
say the children of Bromsgrove District definitely won’t be bored
Activities are taking place in different locations around
Bromsgrove and are easily accessible by public transport. Most
venues also have parking on site. Booking for Go for Fun is now
open. Places are limited so early booking is advised.

the Go for Fun brochure.
