Free Summer Activities

26th July 2020

Free activities for Gateshead families this summer

We are delighted to be able to provide free activities for children and families during the summer holidays, thanks to Government Funding from the Department for Education's Holiday Activities and Food Programme.

This year's #BrightentheDay programme builds on many years of work across Gateshead to provide much needed food and activities during the summer holidays. We have worked closely with our partners, including schools, local charities and community organisations to plan a programme of activities, many of which are accessible to all families in Gateshead.

Below you will find links to online and outdoor activities that are available to all Gateshead families. The activities range from bike rides and nature walks to healthy cooking ideas and much more. We understand that it has been a difficult time for all families, and we hope that by providing these activities we can help you enjoy the summer holiday period.

Don't forget to tell us about the amount of steps, miles or skips you've done over the holidays on our totaliser!
