Go Aerial in the Half Term!

Lancaster City Council is offering a variety of sports and arts activities during the October half term holidays (Monday, October 27 - Friday, October 31) for children aged between 4 and 16 years old. But you’ll have to be quick - places fill up very quickly for these popular activities.

Exciting workshops include mountain boarding at Sedgwick, Kayaking on Lake Windermere or, if you have a head for heights, try Knowsley Safari Park’s Aerial Extreme, the adventure ropes course.

You might also like to try the council's new workshop Film in Action at Regent Park Studios and create your own cinematic fight sequence (just kike Star Wars' like Obi–Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul, perhaps?) using digital film and movement.

Other favourites on offer are karate, archery, fencing, tri-golf, multi skills and trampolining or for the more adventurous try the indoor climbing/abseiling, skiing, bellboating and mountain bike workshops.

For those looking for something with a difference why not go along to the Junior Ranger Workshop: The Great Nocturnal Walk and find out what creatures can be seen and heard in Happy Mount Park after closing time using specialist sound monitoring equipment.

All sessions are in a fun and safe environment by experienced coaches with full day and half day activities available.

Equipment is provided for all workshops and transport is on offer for some of the sessions. Different age groups apply to certain activity workshops. Places on all the activities offered are strictly limited to ensure a high quality coaching session.

A copy of the activities programme and booking form is available on Lancaster City Council's website – www.lancaster.gov.uk/whatson or from Salt Ayre Sports Centre, Lancaster and Morecambe Town Halls, Lancaster and Morecambe Tourist Information Centres and the council's community pools at Hornby, Carnforth and Heysham.

• Places can be booked and paid for at Salt Ayre Sports Centre, Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm (from 10am to 7pm on Wednesday) or by contacting the booking information line on (01524) 842493, between the same times.
