MK’s Summer of Play proves popular with local families – and there’s more to come!

This month, Milton Keynes Council is delivering more than 33,000 FREE activity sessions for children and young people via the Summer of Play programme.

There are still thousands of sessions scheduled to take place before the end of August with spaces available for performing arts, cheerleading, holiday clubs and more.

The council-funded Summer of Play has become a welcome boost to struggling local families and covers hundreds of different indoor and outdoor activities. More than 17,000 sessions have already run this month with each one including a healthy meal and snack. Events are happening across 50 locations in MK, with a wide range of sports, crafts, cookery, music, and activities for children of all ages.

Once again, our Summer of Play is proving incredibly popular and I’d like to thank all those providers who have stepped up this year to create such an exciting and varied programme. We’ve already delivered more than 70,000 hours of free activities and thousands of healthy meals for local children and young people. There’s still plenty to come for the rest of August so please do look at our website if you haven’t already.
