Free family activities - 5 to 11 years

From Monday 8 April to Wednesday 17 April 2019, we have a wide range of free activities across the borough available for you to enjoy with your family.

The sessions will provide opportunities for children aged 5 to 11 to try new things and learn new skills, whilst having fun and making new friends.

All sessions are led by Waltham Forest Play Workers, with specialist workshops provided by professionals from a variety of local organisations. Most activities run for 45 minutes to enable all children to be able to try everything on offer during each session, and allow families to join at any time throughout the session.

Activities that are provided throughout these sessions are suitable and designed for children aged 5 to 11. Children aged 5 to 7 must be accompanied by an adult throughout the sessions. Children aged 8 to 11 may attend the session independently, however a parent, guardian or carer must attend the first session to complete the relevant paperwork.

Details of the dates and times of these activities are below so you can plan your time throughout Easter.
