Make this October half-term one to remember

Make this October half-term one to remember

Don’t sit scratching your head about what to do this half-term. With so much going on in and around Kensington and Chelsea, there’s no excuse for boredom!

Escape city life without leaving London at Holland Park

Make your way to Holland Park where not only can you get lost exploring the stunning woods and parkland, you can fill a whole day with fun activities. Have a kick about or play your favourite sport on the large fields, have a game of giant chess or even learn about wildlife and nature in the Ecology Centre. Home to a range of creepy-crawlies and reptiles, the Ecology Centre is a great place to kick off your half term, and their full programme of half-term events can be found on the Council website

Try something new at The Curve

The Curve Community Centre in North Kensington (10 Bard Road, W10 6TP) is a great place for all ages to try something new, learn useful skills, enrol on a course or just relax with good company. Join The Curve this half term for pizza making, mini-tennis camp, arts and crafts, cooking and more. You can stay up to date with what’s taking place at The Curve and see their full half term programme on the Council’s website.

Get lost in a story at the library

Party on Friday with One Vibe

It wouldn’t be half-term without a community get-together, and One Vibe is bringing just that to Subterania (12 Acklam Road, W10 5QS) in North Kensington. The event will see top DJs from 1Xtra and beyond host a musical celebration on Friday 25 October from 2.30pm to 7.30pm just for ages 11 to 16. The commemorative day pays tribute to the Grenfell tragedy, with organisations from around the borough collaborating in the name of community unity. Tickets are free and available only from The Curve (10 Bard Road, W10 6TP) and The Harrow Club (187 Freston Road, W10 6TH).
