Summer activities begin at the end of the month with a packed family programme by Tower Hamlets Council running until September.
Mayor John Biggs went down to Mile End’s urban adventure base today, joined by schoolchildren, for the launch of the council’s summer activities guide.
The council wants to make sure families, including those on low incomes, are able to join in the East End’s cultural and leisure events.
“Knowing how to keep children busy in the school holidays can be daunting,” he said.
“Things can cost so much—but we have activities that should keep them happy.”
This year’s programme has 160 free or low-cost events and activities at the adventure base centre and in parks, housing estates and leisure centres.

They include archery, wall-climbing, caving, football, wild food walks, pizza-making and pickling workshops.
Annual family favourites like Victoria Park’s ‘great day out’ return with live music, fairground rides, arts and crafts.
