Free children's activities

Wat's On - activities for 5 to 15 year olds

Adventure play

Our hugely popular range of fun and interactive sessions include stage school, adventure play, sports and arts and crafts, all for free.

The Wat's On programme will be back for the Summer holidays between Monday 30 July and Saturday 1 September, where we'll be celebrating the final day of Wat's On by launching our free one-day event - Big Sports. Activities will take place in parks, open spaces and some indoor locations across Watford.

These free events are open access sessions, meaning that we can only supervise children and young people while they are on site and participating in the activities, so bear this in mind if you aren't attending with your children. More information on our Wat's On policies and information for activity sessions can be found here.

For more information, including a full list of the programme and times, visit (booking not required). You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up-to-date with the events.

Other Summer activities include free swim and gym for under 19's and creative fun at Watford Museum.

Due to recent changes to data protection law (GDPR), it is now necessary for all children and young people to be registered by a parent/responsible adult.
