    Building on the momentum from our hugely successful Summer in the City programme, Hammersmith & Fulham Council is continuing to work with local youth activity provider LMP Action and the Holiday Activity and Food Programme to offer activities and events for children and young people.

    We have many different providers delivering across H&F and we’ve got something for everyone! Sport, dance, cookery, Film School, arts and crafts, and family fun for four to 18-year-olds – or up to 25 for those with additional needs. We also have several one-off events for families to enjoy together.

    The most important thing, this winter, is that every event is FREE.

    Our Winter Festive Fun programme is about offering fun and enriching activity for children and young people an spaces for families to come and enjoy the warm.

    We are also working hard to ensure that children can have access to a regular source of free nutritious meals over the Christmas holidays, whether at a local club, event or other community activity. Many of our providers will be providing our Winter Festive Fun bags for families to enjoy over the holiday period, containing recipes, food, activities and more.

    We hope this digital guide will help families and young people to access new exciting pportunities, get involved, be part of their community and have an opportunity to celebrate at this festive time of year.

    Looking forward to seeing you there!
