Wolverhampton’s Yo! Summer programme now boasts hundreds of activities and events to keep children, young people and their families busy during the school holidays.

They include a mix of free and paid activities, ranging from sports, music, drama and outdoor activities to tech play and arts and crafts.

Highlights include athletics and multi sports at WV Active, martial arts with Wolverhampton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a summer camp at The Way, outdoor activities with Camp Beaumont at the Kingswood Trust, sensory sessions with animals at HugglePets in the Community, summer drama days with the Central Youth Theatre, Rock School with WV10 Consortium, Tech Play with LearnPlay Foundation and golf coaching with Let Us Play. 

The activities, many of which are free and include food, are now underway and run throughout the summer holidays. To book, please visit Yo! Wolverhampton Young Opportunities.

Councillor Beverley Momenabadi, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “We’re delighted to once again be able to offer the city’s children and young people hundreds of brilliant events and activities organised by a host of fantastic local organisations this summer. 

“By working closely with local partners and with funding from the council and Department of Education, we have lined up another fun packed programme, ensuring that opportunities are available and accessible in every area of Wolverhampton, with hundreds of them free of charge and including food.

“The city’s children and young people are the council’s top priority and with the current cost of living squeeze a comprehensive offer during the school holidays has never been so important to families.”

All events and activities taking place as part of Yo! Summer can be found on the website. It also enables youngsters and parents to access support, advice and information for everything from mental health and wellbeing to education and careers.
