Summer in the City is back bigger and better than ever

This year’s Summer in the City celebration is back bigger and better than ever!

Thousands of hours of free and low-cost activities to keep your children and young ones entertained over the summer holiday, funded by Hammersmith & Fulham Council.

With festivals, sporting days out, dance workshops and arts classes, plus a range of activities for young carers and young people with disabilities, there’s something for everybody.

We stopped by two events last week – a junior football leaders’ course at Lillie Road recreation centre in Fulham; and a performing arts and fashion course at Phoenix High in White City – to capture the fun. See the photos on our Flickr gallery.

Both events were run by West Kensington-based youth activity provider Let Me Play.

“We also had a great table tennis camp at Bridge Academy, Fulham, and a couple of well-attended disability sessions and art activities at Phoenix High,” said Jessie Jessie Whippen, Let Me Play’s school sports and activities manager.

She added that the fashion design and cookery programmes had also been well subscribed… not to mention the graffiti workshop, focusing on the positive skills of street art.

Other summer distractions for teenagers include kayaking on the Thames and gym training.
