From archery to Street Dance – sign up to Summer Mix 2018


From archery to street dance via go-karting, boxing and a Poole Farm experience day, there really is something for everyone in this year’s Summer Mix activity programme.

Hundreds of activities are taking place at a range of different venues across the Plymouth to suit all interests and abilities. They’ve been organised by Plymouth City Council’s Community Connections Youth Team to liven up the school summer holidays. You can sign up if you’re aged 11 to 19 years, or up to 25 if you have a disability, and all activities are free (except Friday youth evenings at Plymouth Life Centre which are £3.35 per session).

Councillor Sue McDonald, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People for Plymouth City Council, said: “We’re delighted to have Summer Mix back again this year and there really is something for everyone with a fantastic range of courses.

“There’s no excuse to be bored over the summer, we’ve worked with lots of local community organisations to help provide these activities for our young people. Although you’ll need to sign up via our Youth Centres, there are activities taking place at sites all across the city.”

Activities take place between 30 July and 24 August 2018 and include:

  • Build a go-cart
  • Augmented reality
  • Make a film
  • Fashion design
  • Mixed sports
  • First Aid
  • Trampoline and gym
