Kids of all ages and even the young at heart can take part in a range of free and low cost Easter holiday activities in Kensington and Chelsea.

Holland Park’s Ecology Centre is running environmental-themed activities throughout the Easter holidays in the wooded Wildlife Area in Holland Park.

Libraries are hosting events for children, including craft sessions, Baby Rhyme Time and Storytime.

Kids can blow out the winter cobwebs with Epic, the Council’s former youth service, offering a range of activities from kayaking, climbing and a low ropes course and an opportunity for children to eat a healthy cooked lunch as part of the programme.

Kensington Leisure Centre is hosting a range of events and activities.

Children under 8 swim free this Easter, with Kensington Leisure Centre offering the free sessions from 31 March until 15 April, along with other swimming activities which are available at low cost.

There are gymnastics short courses, mini-tennis camps, and Toddlers World – a ‘Stay & Play’ session for toddlers and parents.

As well as events across the borough, there are a number of activities available for residents who have been directly or indirectly affected by the Grenfell tragedy.

These include Flourish, an art-for-wellbeing programme at Maxilla Studios, The Curve’s World Coffee Morning, and a chance for teens to create a unique design for their own T-shirts and bags.

The Ecology Centre will provide a nature-themed Forest School where children can learn about shelter building, whittling, mud painting and even minibeast hunting, with transport provided to and from The Curve.
