Learn how to stop/start, turn and glide through this workshop with your highly trained Skate Assistants. Bring your own wheels or use ours. Blades and 4-wheel skates are available. Suitable for all experience levels. Great for children looking to learn to skate for the first time or improve their abilities.

    ⭐ Thursday 21st Dec - Parkour

    Parkour is the practice of traversing obstacles in a man-made or natural environment through the use of running, vaulting, jumping, climbing, rolling, and other movements in order to travel from one point to another in the quickest and most efficient way possible without the use of equipment. Led by Ricky and his team, they help create a dynamic and inclusive environment where the kids can learn a few new skills while having a blast.

    ⭐ Friday 22nd Dec - Sound in Motion

    Hosted by our VacFun team, this workshop will have the participants making musical anklets, tambourines and paper roll shakers. The first part of the workshop will focus on making instruments to then be used in the second half, where they will be used in fun musical games such as Statues, Musical Blocks (the gym hall version of musical chairs) and a dance-off or two.

    A wonderful opportunity to get creative and noisy!
