Go4It Easter Half Term Activities 2019

Designed as a lower cost alternative to childcare in the school holidays and rather than just looking after your children we aim to keep them active, creative, social and most importantly keep them having fun. We have a wide range of activities for children and young people from under 5s to 13 plus across our Link4Life centres, our theme this Easter is Daring Dragons. 

All Link4Life holiday activities are run by qualified and experienced coaches or leaders and to ensure the programme is safe and child-friendly all staff are CRB checked to an enhanced level and fully aware of safety and child protection issues.

Don't forget you will need to book in advance for most sessions.

Regardless, Hiccup ventures out into battle and downs a mysterious Night Fury dragon with his invention, but can't bring himself to kill it. Instead, Hiccup and the dragon, whom he dubs Toothless, begin a friendship that would open up both their worlds as the observant boy learns that his people have misjudged the species.

But even as the two each take flight in their own way, they find that they must fight the destructive ignorance plaguing their world.
