Projekts MCR started running school holiday clubs back in 2015 with the aim of providing a child friendly time slot during our busiest periods so that we could safely introduce new kids to the skatepark. Kids have the option to learn to skateboard with one of our incredible coaches or they scooter around and explore the park on their own and with friends. We hope the clubs provide parents with a few hours rest as well.
The sessions run 10am-1pm, are mixed age (5-14) and ability and are always supervised by at least one of our coaches who is on hand to welcome everyone, keep everyone safe and offer tips, guidance and beginners lessons to anyone who wants to be challenged.
All equipment including skateboards, scooters and safety pads are provided by Projekts.
Pre-booked: £10 (£7 siblings discount)
Drop in on the day: £15 (£7 siblings discount)
Book now by emailing Jonny@projektsmcr.com with the names of the children you’re booking for and the dates you’d like to attend.

“The Hocus Pocus Treasure Hunt is great! We used it for my daughters 7th birthday party with a group of 10 kids and it worked really well. They were transfixed by Merlin the Wizard ‘skyping’ them (so they thought!) and loved the activities like learning how to cast a spell and the flying on a broomstick song. Easy to prepare as long as you read the instructions thoroughly well in advance and simple to run -it’s all done for you!! Highly recommended!”
