Bring it on Brum!

 

Bring It On Brum! is running FREE activity clubs in Birmingham throughout the winter school holidays for young people aged 4-16 who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals. Each club will run for up to seven days and each child is eligible to attend four sessions.

 

Holiday clubs will run between Wednesday, 27 and Friday, 29 December 2023 and Tuesday, 2 and Friday, 5 January 2024. Most holiday clubs will run during the first week of January.

Activities include sports and games, arts and crafts, cookery, dance and music. Programmes will vary depending on the type of provision and location of each club, but every day young people will get a nutritious meal served up for free!

 

Bookings for winter holiday clubs will open from Monday, 4 December 2023 at: https://www.bringitonbrum.co.uk

 

The website will be updated regularly as new providers are confirmed so if families cannot find a suitable holiday club straight away, please encourage them to check back again. For the winter programme we have provided parents of eligible children with a code. Please speak to the school office if you have not received this.
