Easter Activities 2018
With Easter so early this year, the holidays are also creeping up. We’ve taken the stress out of the holidays for you by compiling a list of some of the holiday activities you can choose from. We’re proud to collaborate with Ginny Bradley, Diamond Blade Fencing, Swimming Rocks, Young Photographers, Club Petit Pierrot, Active Day Camps, Little Hands and The Jam to bring you some of the most exciting Easter activities in North West London.
Which one will you choose?
Ginny Bradley will be offering two workshops for Easter (3 -8 years)(approx.)
Venue: Sherriff Centre, NW6 2AP
Time: 10:00 to 12:00-both dates.
Wed 4th April – Concentrating on all tasks (Age 3+-6 years)
Concentration can be hard, especially if we are not keen on what we are required to concentrate on! With a little mental shift, we will recognise that concentration can be quite interesting!
Wed 11th April – Building a Village Together (Age 4-8 years)
This workshop will inspire children to be an important member of a team, and to value everyone’s contributions. An insight into the importance of others and accepting differences as well as similarities. Being creative, and thinking big!
Diamond Blade Fencing Club is offering a fun and unique experience for children 5-12 years old who have no experience or at beginner level. Not only is fencing a beautiful and elegant sport by the nature of it’s movements, it’s also a very broad discipline as it teaches your MIND & BODY to work together. One learns to think and move fast. It also challenges your reaction time against your opponent so you learn to make decisions very quickly – otherwise, you get hit! And THAT is an invaluable life skill. The techniques can be taught and learned slowly and methodically, allowing a fencer to develop a good memory and gain patience and perseverance along the way. Fencing is a well-rounded sport and some of the other topics covered are:
- Foundation, history and techniques of fencing
- Coordination Drills
- Agility and Strength Exercises
- Respect and Discipline
- Development of fine motor skills
- Focus & Concentration

Active Day Camps’ multi-activity, specialist sport and art camps are based at the UCS Junior School, Hampstead. At the purpose-built facility, we incorporate specialist-led activities into our programme, such as Capoeira, Non-Contact Boxing, Kids With Brains Science workshops and Football with an ex-pro. All this alongside our core activities, including dodgeball, mini tennis, arts & crafts and soft-archery!

Little Hands Design holiday classes are a great opportunity for children to channel their creativity. Boys and girls are welcome to join in and let their creativity run wild. They can make clothes and accessories using free design as well as patterns.
The classes are suitable for all sewing skills levels, age 6+ to 18. Each student works on their own project, depending on their ability. We take them from the level they are at, for example complete beginners start by learning how to thread the machine, get the settings right depending on the fabric and then start making a starter project. Once they are confident, they can choose more complex projects incorporating new sewing skills. They get to choose the project and fabric, most of it being Ted Baker donated fabric – all materials and haberdashery are included in the price. Children hand sew and use sewing machines and, depending on skills, an overlocker.
It is a fashion fun week where students learn about fashion design, sustainability and recycling. At the end of the day parents are greeted with a loud: “I made it myself!!”
The Jam London are a bespoke dance party experience for children aged 4-17 years. They offer street dance parties to help you celebrate your special day, from birthdays and bar mitzvahs to sweet sixteens and wedding creches.
Children will jam to their favourite tunes, learn a choreographed dance routine and create their very own DanceJam film. The whole event is filmed and edited by The Jam London team to create your very own movie memento of the day.
They also offer workshops in schools and holidays camps. The next one is during the Easter holidays at Mallinsons Sports Centre, Highgate, 9th-13th April 2018, for school years 3-6. The price of the course is £200 for the full week or £40 per day, with lunch included. Book your child’s place at 020-8342-7272.
