Active Kidz

Active Kidz

Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation we are not running the Active Kidz programme this summer.

What is Active Kidz?

Active Kidz holiday play schemes are available for children and young people aged 5 to 14. 

There's an exciting variety of activities available including:

  • sports
  • arts and crafts
  • dance
  • cookery
  • drama
  • messy art
  • swimming (8+)
  • parachute games

All our activities take place in a safe and stimulating environment, with our team of experienced play workers always on hand.

How to book

Once open, you'll be able to book your child's place by calling customer services on 0191 433 7117. We'll keep you updated on when bookings become available.

Food and drink

Children should bring a packed lunch for each day, including enough drinks for the whole day.


As your child may be participating in outdoor activities on a daily basis, please provide suitable clothing each day they attend. A change of clothes may also be necessary, due to some activities being very messy.

If your child is over eight years old they may be swimming, please bring a swimming costume. When necessary, you'll also need to provide sun protection or water proofs.

We also advise your child doesn't bring any valuables with them to the venue as we cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged items.


Your child must bring any prescribed medication they need to take during the day, to the venues each day. The medication must be in the original packaging that states the child's name and dosage.
