A list of organisations and their delivery locations for the Spring Holiday 2022 programme can be found at the following link CHFP 2021-22 Venues [130kb].
Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 restrictions, some organisations may not have been able to confirm venues they initially hoped to use. We advise that parents/carers contact organisations directly as they will be able to give the most accurate updates on their individual programmes. Similarly, they will also be able to advise about spaces or waiting lists. We appreciate this is not ideal, but organisations have had to be flexible in their approach this year, with both venues and capacity subject to change, which is why we ask that you contact them directly in the first instance.
