School Holiday Activities

Over the last few years Leigh Community Centre has provided a dedicated programme of events for local families during the school holidays. We try our best to provide fun, varied and affordable activities for all ages, the popularity of which has soared! 

If you would like to be sent updates regarding our events, please email us your details and we will add you to our mailing list.

We do require advanced booking, due to limited spaces and all our events require parental supervision. To book a space please contact us on 01702 477248 or email.

Testimonial from a local parent:

‘Thank you to all those involved behind the scenes and upfront who have organised such a great range of summer activities.  We … just wanted to say that each activity has been so good and great value for money too. We particularly enjoyed the Disney Dance workshop and the Little Riders session.  Leigh Community Centre has really hit the spot with such a broad vision of adult and child interests. It really is an essential centre of excellence for the community.'

Summer 2019

We have lots of activities going on throughout the Summer Holidays at Leigh Community Centre. Spaces can be limited so don't forget to book in advance by calling 01702 716288.
