About Us

Welcome everyone, we’re glad you’re here!

Birmingham Holiday Activities is a new programme for families in Birmingham set up to help all children, young people (and their parents) have fulfilling, active, fun-filled and healthy school holidays. Set up as part of the new Holiday Activities and Food programmes, Birmingham Holiday Activities is the biggest scheme of its kind in the country, and we’re really excited to bring it to you and your family!

We believe that everyone deserves a good break and that school holidays are better when there’s a great choice of things to do to keep children and young people active, having fun, being entertained and learning new things. That kind of break can help recharge the batteries, give parents a bit less to worry about and get kids ready to go back to school again.

After the incredibly difficult year many families have had, now that our COVID lockdown rules are easing, we’re looking forward to socialising a little more outdoors. While these Easter holidays will still be challenging for many families, we hope you will love exploring our new site with over 400 different free ideas and resources for keeping children and young people busy. Activities include indoor and outdoor games; cookery skills; arts and crafts; sports, fitness and dance; health and wellbeing; quizzes; park activities and nature trails.

We love Brum and want to help our communities make the most of what’s on their doorstep and to explore our fantastic city during the holidays. Even though we might not be able to return to a ‘normal’ routine quite yet, we hope our site gives your family some great ideas for things to try at home, in the park, alone or with a friend or all the family.

Look out for daily ideas and challenges appearing on our social media. We’d love to see how you are spending your holidays, so follow us on Twitter, FaceBook and Instagram at @BhamHolidayActs and share your #HAF2021 holidays with us!
