Holidays Activities

Nottingham market square

Summer is here!

In these different and unprecedented times, lock down has made many of us into homeworkers, home schoolers, walkers, and home workout champions.
As we are still adjusting to a new normal as lock down measures ease, we have put together some summer activities that you and your family can enjoy at home and out and about in a safe way.

In Nottingham City, School Summer Holidays run from Monday 27th of July to Thursday 27th August (Friday 28th August is an Inset day and Monday 31st August is a Bank Holiday). Schools start on Tuesday 1st September.
