School Holidays

Council is committed to providing children and families in Liverpool with things to see and do that promote creativity, learning and play.

Many of our school holiday activities allow children and teenagers to get creative through arts and crafts, music, dance, story writing and more. Other activities, such as yoga, basketball and skateboarding workshops, promote the importance of keeping young people healthy and active.

There'll be a number of events and workshops, many of which are free, held at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, all Liverpool City Library branches and our great outdoor spaces.

Spark your imagination and creativity through fun, affordable hands-on school holiday activities at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. Bookings are essential as places are limited. All workshop materials will be provided.
