Whether you are planning to celebrate Easter, Passover or observing Ramadan this month, there’s something for everyone this spring in Battersea, Nine Elms and Vauxhall.

For the young people in your life, Nine Elms-based youth organisation FAST are hosting a range of affordable activities and trips during the school holidays, check out the FAST Instagram page for more information.

Easter Unlocked is back with a free programme of activities, plus a free nutritious meal. It’s eligible for children aged four to 19 (up to 25 years for those with SEND) on free school meals and is run by Wandsworth Council with funding from the Department for Education. Eligible families will be contacted directly but parents who think their child may be eligible can find out more about Easter Unlocked and book online.

Want your kids to learn new skills whilst having fun during the holidays? There are plenty of activities with Vauxhall City Farm’s Easter Club starting from 4 April and free for any children who qualify for free school meals.

Does your child love football instead? Ginga Soccer School are running an Easter Holiday Camp at Powerleague Nine Elms. Find out how to book Ginga Soccer School.

Local libraries regularly have lots of great activities going on if the weather isn’t looking great, so why not check out what’s on at Battersea Park Library or South Tate Lambeth Library?

For families, there will be lots of happy hopping bunnies with Battersea Power Station’s free Hoppy Easter activities from 9 to 10 April and 15 to 18 April, including an Easter Bunny Egg Hunt, a Petting Zoo and Maze, outdoor games, pop-up food and drink huts.

If you can’t make those dates – try out the Easter Egg hunt at Embassy Gardens with artisan Cartografie Chocolate running from 14 to 16 April, or if you’re visiting Battersea Park Zoo there’s an Easter Egg hunt taking place from 4 to 17 April to keep the little ones occupied.

There’s plenty going on for the adults over the holidays too!
