Free summer activity brochure for children, young people and families 

Published Friday, 05 July 2024

An electronic brochure packed full of summer activities and events for young people and families in Hinckley and Bosworth can now be downloaded from the Borough Council’s website. 

The in-depth guide to what’s on this summer is a free electronic booklet aimed at young people of up to 19 years old, and is packed full of information that is sure to keep them busy during the school holidays.  

‘What’s on this summer’ can be viewed or downloaded for free

There is information on sports activities, a reading challenge at the libraries, and a whole variety of different events at locations throughout the borough. One of the highlights of the summer is the council’s children’s Snapdragon Festival taking place in Hinckley (5 – 7 August from 11am to 3pm). Most activities are free with the others costing no more than a pound.  

It is also worthwhile checking with the individual venues included in the brochure to see if there are any other activities happening, keep up to date with changes, and check if advance booking is required.

Included in the brochure is also lots of advice for families, accessing support, information about our uniform swap shop and lots more. 

Councillor Robin Webber-Jones, Mayor of Hinckley and Bosworth and Children and Young People’s Champion at the Borough Council said:

"As in previous year’s, many families are taking the decision to ‘staycation’ at home, and I am delighted that once again we have been able to pull together this essential summer activity and event guide. It is a great resource with details on a wide range of activities and events for babies, children, young people and their families in Hinckley and Bosworth along with some helpful information and advice. 

I am sure that this guide will help families plan days out helping them to spread any financial cost although I am pleased to say many activities are free, please download and take a look.”
