The 2016 Cathedral Holiday Club will run from Monday 25th until Friday 29th July, from 10am until 3pm daily. An optional breakfast club and afternoon club are available for those who would like to use it.

The title for this year’s event is “Champions Challenge”, taking up the summer’s Olympic and Paralympic theme. Each day will use a reading from St Luke’s Gospel as inspiration, but activities will vary from energetic games in the Cloisters to bread making and exploring inside the historic cathedral.

The holiday club will be led by the cathedral’s experienced team of DBS checked staff and volunteers. Alex Carton, schools and families officer at the cathedral, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for children to chill out and make friends as well as to find out more about this beautiful cathedral and what it can teach us.”
