Our leisure centres are open! We've made lots of changes to limit user numbers, keep everywhere clean and keep everyone safe in our gyms, classes and pools. Everything you need to know before you bisit is available on our re-opening information page. Find out more.

Kids activities

Children at a party in a swimming pool


Throughout the summer we have a host of activities for young people across our leisure centres, parks and Bonington Theatre. Activities include swimming sessions, sports clubs, arts and crafts, discos, play days and theatre performances that are perfect for keeping children entertained all summer. Some events are free and some are discounted when you purchase a Gedling Leisure Card. View the full programme of activities.
