Manchester Libraries are excited to offer a range of free activities for children eligible for benefit-related free school meals over the school summer holidays.

You’ll find arts and crafts, music making and science workshops happening. All the sessions are fun and interactive and are aimed at young people aged from 11 to 15 years old. In addition to the activities, every booked place includes a FREE lunch too.

Spaces are limited and need to be booked in advance. To book a place on any of the events go to the MCRActive website and search by provider, typing “Manchester Libraries”. Alternatively, you can contact the library that is running the session by phone, email or coming into the library in person.
