Futureheads Summer Project 2021

16-27 August | Monday-Friday | 10am-4pm

Futureheads Summer Project is an action-packed fortnight for 8-11 year olds bursting with activities from creative workshops (including mural painting and how to organise your own protest) to ridiculously silly games and… water fights of course! 

Led by experienced, DBS checked youth leaders, each day is a different adventure aimed at developing kids’ skills in creativity, problem-solving, innovation and collaboration whilst having as much fun as is humanly possible.

Spaces are FREE and are prioritised for residents of Kings Crescent Estate, neighbouring area and Hackney Housing residents.

  • Children should bring packed lunch, clothes for messing around in and a waterproof jacket
  • All bookers will receive a welcome email on Monday 9 August with final details

You can book for one or two weeks, but please try and ensure that children attend each day they are booked in for: https://www.hackneyshowroom.com/futureheads-summer-project/

Homework Club

The Residents Group (TRA) is running a homework club for 8-14 year olds on Mondays after school (kindly funded by a grant from Hackney). We will be continuing over the summer!

This provides a quiet place for young people to do their homework or additional learning with support from experienced volunteers (all DBS checked). Additional optional activities will be offered over the summer if children don’t have homework to do including debating games, art & crafts, cooking etc.

Snacks and drinks will be provided and we will have some games and activities at the start and end of each session.

Places are limited to 15 due to Covid-19 minimisation guidelines.

To register for a place or for more information contact: KingsCrescentN4@gmail.com or 07926568497

(The homework club has resumed in the Vince Murrain Hall while improvement works are happening in the Hackney Showroom space)
