School holidays

We offer school holiday programmes and activities at our sport and recreation centres, botanic gardens and pools.


How to book

We are using a booking system called 'EnrolMy' so you will be able to see what's on, book multiple days at once and pay straight away. Once you select 'book now' for your chosen recreation centre, you will be taken to the EnrolMy site where you can make your booking. Please note that EnrolMy uses a secure payment system and that your invoice will have 'EnrolMy' on it. 

To find out more about how our holiday programmes work, make sure you read the terms and conditions. You'll find out everything you need to know about what to do if you are going to be late or have to miss a session, before and after care arrangements, and health and safety.
