In the school holidays we have family shows, arts and crafts, storytelling and children’s movies – there is something on every day.

During the summer, we bring in over 12 tonnes of sand and create The Maidenhead Beach – somewhere for children to play for free while parents can enjoy something to eat and drink at the beach side café.

Our Christmas shows are based on children’s story books and are perfect for younger children. Previous shows have included The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark, How to Catch a Star and Kipper’s Snowy Day. In 2015, we are delighted to welcome back Percy the Park Keeper in One Snowy Night, based on the hit books by Nick Butterworth.

Our annual Community Lantern Parade takes place in December and brings together families to create willow lanterns then parade them through Maidenhead Town Centre, accompanied by musicians and dancers.

Look out for Jump In! over the Easter holidays – our family arts festival which includes 1 hour workshops such as Circus Skills, Chocolate Making and Samba Drumming, all for less than £5 each.

Throughout the year, we host groups, classes and workshops for pre-school children, children and young people. All activities are led by DBS checked arts professionals.

At our heart is our key aim: “to teach children how to cook nutritious food from scratch, helping them to learn a valuable life skill”. We run classes during term time and the school holidays as well as workshops, parties, Duke of Edinburgh courses and more. We have been teaching children to cook since 2007 since then we have certainly grown, and so have our students. We are now offering franchising opportunities nationwide; please go to the franchise page for more info.

Classes and Clubs
Our breakfast, lunch and after school classes are enjoyed by hundreds of children every week as they develop skills and confidence with food, creating nutritious and exciting dishes from scratch. Our specially created programme has been developed with a variety of school facilities in mind, so whether your school has a fully-fitted food technology suite, or just a room with access to washing up facilities, we have a solution that will fit. And with a three year rolling curriculum there is a fantastic variety and something new to look forward to each week.

Parties

Dance-Design summer camp in East Finchley for young people 5-9 & 10-14

  • 5 DAYS OF DANCE, DESIGN, MUSIC AND STORYTELLING WORKSHOPS
  • 4 GEOMETRICAL THEMES TO EXPLORE
  • A SHOW TO PUT TOGETHER
  • AN EXCITING AND INSPIRING MISSION

Moving Shapes is an innovative summer dance-design camp for young people aged 5-9 and 10-14 held at Martin School, East Finchley, from 3th-7th August.

Each day will run 8.30am – 4pm, during which the young people are invited to explore a progressive exploration of dance movement, geometry, stories and sound.

The end goal of Moving Shapes will be a performance completely envisioned and created by the young people that illustrates their explorations to share with friends and family.

The workshop will be delivered by a collective of skilled and supportive teachers, who will challenge the young people to use their imagination whist learning about real life creative practices in a very hands on way. The workshop method is inspired Bruno Munari, who was one of the greatest protagonists of 20th century art. Like Munari, we apply a multi-faceted approach that is difficult to enclose in a single definition: “To keep the spirit of childhood within yourself in all your life means to maintain curiosity to know, to find pleasure in understanding and to desire to communicate.” (Bruno Munari, 1988)

Limited spaces: early bird booking at reduced price of £210 until 30th June for the 5 days.

Non-Residential

No experience necessary, just some energy and a smile! You send us your child and we’ll find the performer!

I have been running fun filled confidence building camps for children aged between 5 to 12 years for over 8 yrs, I have seen many children go from strength to strength along the way. Not all children are born performers, some lack the confidence to’ have a go’ what I set out to do is encourage them to have fun and gain that confidence at the same time.

Held in Wimbledon SW19. With a teacher /child ratio of 1 to 8 the children are well cared for. All teachers are police checked. Each day the children bring a packed lunch.

Run by professional performers with many years of experience in their field. Each week has a different theme, from ‘Music Through The Ages’ to ‘The Wonderful World of Television’ and many more!
