Lasting for 90 minutes, each bubble/household will be allocated a 10 x 10 metre independent space to participate in fun and structured activities. All sessions will include a mass warm up and cool down, and then there will be a number of instructor-led games and challenges suitable for the whole family to take part in (age 4 years and over).

Activities will include egg and spoon races, air boxercise, circuit challenge, balancing, mini hurdles, bean bag games, relay races, hula hooping, throw and catch, target games and much more! Each activity will last for approximately 10 minutes.

The sessions will take place every weekday from 22 July until 26 August. There will be two sessions per day, running from 10.30am to 12 noon and 1.30 to 3pm, except for Mondays where there is only an afternoon session.
