Enjoy a fun packed holiday with Hackney Council's summer guide

With the summer holiday now underway, we have published our annual summer guide, with details of hundreds of free activities to keep young people busy while school is out.

There’s no need to be stuck indoors over the long break. From arts and culture to sports, libraries and play schemes, there’s something to suit all tastes.

Cllr Rita Krishna, Cabinet Member for Education and Children's Services, Hackney Council
The Summer Guide is a one-stop shop to find out about all the exciting activities taking place across the borough during the school holiday, from which young people can choose what they’d like to do.

Whether you’re a sporting novice or a future Olympian; a budding artist or a star of the stage, you won’t be short of inspiration to help make this another summer to remember – and best of all, most of them are free!
Cllr Rita Krishna, Cabinet Member for Education and Children's Services, Hackney Council

  • Food Festival at Young Hackney Forest Road
  • Parkour (free running), climbing and Duke of Edinburgh Adventure Days
