Summer!

In a week’s time, the summer holidays will have begun for all of our local schools. With six weeks to fill, the school break can be rather daunting for parents and children. But we are here to help, with a whole range of activities.

The Get into Arts Festival is a real celebration of the arts for children and adults of all ages. Tickets are available via the Brentwood Theatre website or their box office (01277 563678).

There’s dance, music, drama, illustration, writing and more, so take your pick!

As well as the festival, we are providing a programme of events at Chicken and Frog. Our regular Creative Writing Club, Handwriting & Fine Motor Skills, Rhythm & Rhyme (Thursdays only in the summer), continue to run throughout the break. All of these sessions are drop-in.

Some sessions have an educational focus and we ask that you book and pay for these in advance:

Our Summer Club is relaxed and great fun, with a range of activities to choose from each Friday. Again, we ask that these are booked and paid for in advance, to ensure that we have all of the resources in place.

Sensory Story Time is on the 3rd August. This month we will be reading the beautiful Handa’s Surprise. Please book your place for this free event, as spaces are limited.

Harry Potter and the Lego Challenge are already fully booked, sorry. Look out for more of the same in the next school break. We have two drop-in sessions planned, suitable for all ages:

The Cafe Corner remains open for light refreshments. Plus, all of the beautiful books, including some super activity books for long journeys, if you are lucky enough to be going away this summer.

The ‘Giraffe’s Can’t Dance’ Party is sure to be lots of fun too – please book up in advance for this, as spaces are limited.

Teen Book Club and Adults’ Book Club are both scheduled to meet up. Remember to pick up your copy of the book, so that you have plenty of time to read it.

Wow, that’s a lot. If you have any questions, you can call us on 01277 230068 or contact us via the form below.
