SPOOKY AND KOOKY OCTOBER HALF TERM HOLIDAY CAMPS & WORKSHOPS…

Posted by Kat Heath on 11 Oct 2023

The October Half Term break is approaching what seems extremely rapidly this year.  It really doesn’t seem long since the beginning of the Autumn Term and yet we are already nearly half way through!

Myself like many other working parents can find it hard to keep our children entertained and stimulated during the (sometimes rainy) mid Autumn break.

So with that in mind, Epsom & Ewell Families have collated a list of some of the holiday clubs and workshops available in the area from those on vetted and recommended on our directory to keep your children entertained throughout the half term break.
