Activities for young people in Newham

Winter Activities December 2022 - January 2023

Winter and the festive season is finally here with us and we have produced an extensive winter activities programme brochure, for Newham’s Children and young people. The brochure contains information about all the free activities on offer, the dates and the venues.

For families who are in receipt of benefits related free school meals, the Council is making a nutritious meal offer available during the school break.

The Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) section in this brochure, has information of places that have been funded to provide free wholesome meals and exciting activities to those who receive benefits related free school meals. Please make sure you have a look at this section and book slots as early as possible.

The Council is also offering a range of inclusive activities to cater for our vulnerable young people so that no one is left out.

Our Youth Zones will provide a variety of exciting activities such as basketball, table tennis, pool, PS4 computers games and football. Refreshments, lunch and dinner will also be provided.

A range of festive family fun activities from Festive lego making to festive family quizzes, festive arts and crafts, plus family movie and popcorn shows, are some of the fun activities on offer at your local libraries.

In this brochure, you will also find important information on how to get help and support during the festive season. This will include help with your finances, how to stay healthy during the winter season, available warm havens and much more.

I hope this special festive offer will ease the financial pressure some of you face and that you will take part in the events, make new friends, learn new skills and most importantly have fun!
