What's on for young people

Youth sessions online and outdoors

We've created a great range of sessions you can enjoy for free this summer.

Some are from the comfort of your own home and others are outdoors, following the government's coronavirus (COVID-19) safety rules.

Whether you like music, quizzes or outdoor games and activities, there's a session for you.

Sign-up to let us know what interests you, and we'll be in touch!
