Summer Holiday Clubs:

Bring it on Brum! is running FREE activity clubs in Birmingham for those aged 4-16 who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals. Throughout the summer school holidays, each club runs for up to 4 weeks and each child is eligible to attend a maximum of 16 sessions.

Activities include sports and games, arts and crafts, cookery, dance and music. Programmes will vary depending on the type of provision and location of each club, but every day young people will get a nutritious meal served up for free!

During previous programmes, we had a significant number of young people book clubs which they did not attend. This takes away from other children who would like to attend. If you book an activity for your child/ren, and they can no longer attend, please contact the provider to cancel the spaces, so these can be made available for other children.

Your summer Bring it on Brum! (HAF/FSM) code is: 3307013

You will need this code to book your summer holiday activities through the Bring it on Brum! Website or directly with the holiday club of your choice. You will also need this code to request a summer activity pack (one per eligible child).

Bookings for summer holiday clubs will open from Monday 3rd July 2023 at:
