Wolverhampton’s Yo! February half term activities are set to offer a host of fun events for the city’s children, young people and their families next week.

The half term offer gets into full swing from Monday (21 February) and continues throughout the week, with a range of activities – many of them free – chosen by young people, for young people.

The programme includes multi sports, arts and crafts, pancake games, mask making workshops, theatre and dance shows, wild cooking and nature activities. 

Gazebo Theatre will be running a week long programme of music, film production, gardening activities, art and live theatre shows for children and young people aged from 6 to 17. 

There will also be a fantastic range of activities for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities organised by a range of providers including RUOE, Sassy Sensory and Voice4Parents. They include sensory fun days, sports activities, arts and crafts, soft play, cinema trips and animal handling with the ever popular Huggle Pets. 

Councillor Beverley Momenabadi, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “As a council, we are delivering on our priority of giving children and young people the best possible start in life and the Yo! Wolves offer for February half term provides a fantastic line up of activities for children and young people of all ages and abilities. 

“I would like to give our thanks to all of the local providers, volunteers and organisations that have worked with us to build this offer and I would encourage everyone to have a look at Yo! Wolverhampton Young Opportunities, book your places and have some fun this February half term.”

Councillor Mike Hardacre, Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Work, added: “I’m delighted that there is such a huge range of opportunities for young people this half term and to see the Yo! offer getting bigger and better each holiday. 

“We’re thrilled once again to be working with lots of local partners, old and new, who are helping us expand our Yo! holiday programme even further.”
