This page of our Information Hub is intended to provide details of free to access activities and events for children and young people during summer 2021.  We have invited local authorities, national organisations and charities to share details of their events and activities with us for inclusion on this webpage.

We have asked organisations to give us relevant information about accessibility, language provision, location, staffing etc. including confirmation that they follow Wales’ Safeguarding Procedures, but we have not independently verified the details that they have provided.

We have taken all reasonable steps to ensure the information is as accurate and up to date as possible but the information hosted here has been provided by the external agency or organisation(s) running the activity.  We cannot be held responsible for the accuracy of this information, and would direct you to contact the event or activity provider directly should you have any queries about the details provided.

We are also aware that some services are providing a reduced provision at present due to Covid guidelines.  This might mean that they fill up more quickly than usual.
