Make Summer Holidays Less of a Drama with Children’s Activities

The marathon summer holidays are due to begin next week across the UK, and with the average child declaring their boredom at least 106 times over the summer, online children’s activity directory is urging parents to plan ahead for the most stressful time of year for working families.  Regardless of kids’ age, gender and interests, the comprehensive list of local drama schools and performing arts related activities is guaranteed to help parents find a suitable summer school or holiday workshop for their offspring. is the essential one-stop online destination for working parents looking for ways to entertain the children throughout the holidays.  From one day workshops to holiday clubs with a duration of one or two weeks, the online directory offers parents and children a wealth of choice in activity, location and length of the workshop or summer school.

Lynn Beaumont, founder of, said, “It is so important to keep children entertained and stimulated throughout the long summer break, for the whole family’s sake.  In 2012 parents spent £1.5 billion trying to entertain their kids over summer, but can help parents compare and evaluate their options in order to choose the most cost effective way to keep the children happy.  An array of children’s holiday activities awaits on the website, from musical theatre summer schools to film workshops – there’s something for everyone.”

Keeping the kids busy over the school holidays isn’t just in the interest of parents; it can also aid your child’s development depending on the activity.  Choosing a drama workshop or acting club can radically build on self-confidence, self-awareness and social skills for children of all ages.  Enrolling on a dance holiday course can develop memory, coordination, spatial awareness and social skills, and taking part in any activity will be an opportunity for children or teenagers to make new friends.   

The best thing about the activities on offer at is they are totally and completely inclusive.  Besides from age grouping, there are no other restrictions on the workshops and holiday clubs meaning they are ideal for beginners or children who have established a hobby.  The long holidays are the perfect time for children to try something new, and with it couldn’t be easier to find inspiration.

“Make this year’s school holidays less of a drama,” Ms Beaumont added.  “It doesn’t need to be stressful for parents and boring for children.  Log onto today to choose from hundreds and hundreds of local summer schools and holiday activities.”
