Are you looking for ways to help keep your kids entertained this summer? Then look no further! Hammersmith & Fulham Council has more than 1,000 events for children, young people and families this summer.

Our Summer in the City programme has events across west London for all ages – and every event is either free or low-cost.

These events include sport, music lessons, arts and crafts, cooking skills and fashion. And you don’t need to miss out on the fun as youngsters can bring their parents and carers to many of the activities.

“There’s so much on the Summer in the City website to help all young people really get the most out of the weeks ahead,” said Cllr Larry Culhane, H&F Cabinet Member for Children and Education.

“There are activities for young people aged up to 19, as well as events for Disabled people aged 25 and under.”

Don’t miss out!

Some are drop-in sessions but others must be booked in advance so go to the Summer in the City website now if you don’t want to miss out.

There are activities to suit young people aged up to 19 years old and there are also those for Disabled people aged 25 and under.

Most of them are run by well known youth provider Let Me Play who are based in Blythe Road in West Kensington.
