Holiday Fun: Summer 2024 – Drumming

Wednesday 31 July - Tuesday 13 August 2024

Children can let off steam and make some fantastic noise with drumming at Firstsite Holiday Fun in Colchester!

Most suitable for 4 – 11 years, but all ages welcome. Caregivers are required to stay on site throughout the activities.

Activities take place outside. Please make sure those taking part in activities are dressed appropriately for the weather.

Our Holiday Fun activities are for families facing economic challenges or who require additional support during the school holidays, including those that qualify for benefits-based free school meals.

Holiday Fun is designed in partnership with African Families in the UK, Bangladeshi Women’s Association Essex and Level Best Enterprises.

This project has been funded by the North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance and Wellbeing Alliance and the Neighbourhood programme and Essex Community Foundation.  Funding is administered through One Colchester.
