Summer Fun Holiday Club Tue 15th August - Today's theme is NORTH AMERICA!

Tue 15th August | £15 - £12 if booking multiple sessions

Looking for something different for your children to do during the summer holidays?

New for 2017, we will be running a series of half-day children’s clubs aimed at children 8-11 years. There will be games, crafts, stories, movement and drama activities, with plenty of opportunities to make friends and learn new skills in the safe and beautiful surroundings of Buckfast Abbey.
The creative workshops are being run by professional workshop creators and facilitators so that parents can drop their children off for a morning of fun, safe in the knowledge they are being looked after by a dedicated team.
The Summer Fun Holiday Club will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout August with sessions running from 9.30am – 12.30pm on Tuesday 8th, 15th and 22nd August and Thursday 10th, 17th and 24th August.
The sessions cost £15 per child per session or £12 per child per session for multiple bookings. The cost includes mid-morning refreshments.
Pre-booking is required.
