There's a lot going on in Fleet this half term to keep all members of the family occupied.

Have a laugh

The Harlington is hosting the Comedy Club 4 Kids featuring comedians Jim Smallman, Luke Benson and Tom Webb on Saturday 26 October at 2pm. This event has received fantastic reviews in other venues and seating is cabaret style giving children a taste of a comedy club experience. Although the comedy is aimed at children aged 6 and over (including parents) younger ones can attend if they're able to sit still for about an hour.

Get pampered

Claire's Accessories in the Hart Centre are doing nail painting on the following days as part of Fleet Fashion Week:

  • Monday 27th October: midday - 4pm
  • Wednesday 29th October: midday - 4pm
  • Friday 31st October: midday - 4pm

Be entertained

If you need more structured activity, Frogmore Leisure Centre has a full activity programme for children aged 6-12 including football, dancing, bouncy castle, face painting and music. Children can the entire day or individual sessions with reduced costs for 365 card holders.

Burn off some energy

If the weather's good don't forget a visit to one of the many parks in Fleet for children of any age.

Watch others burning off energy

Come out and cheer on the runners in the Fleet 10k which takes place in Fleet on Sunday 26 October - the race starts at 10am near the Harlington and proceeds along Fleet Road, Elvetham Road and Reading Road North finishing in Victoria Road car park.

Get baking for Halloween

Halloween falls on the Friday of half term so check out some baking ideas.

Make some crafts

There's a free craft session in the Hart Centre on Saturday 1 November, 10am to 4pm organised by Buttons' children's parties with crafts for both boys and girls as part of Fleet Fashion Week. The event is free but donations are welcome for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.

Take a selfie with a model

A number of retailers in Fleet will have Live Fashion Windows on Saturday 1 November from 10am - 2pm so come along, take a selfie and post them on the Fleet Fashion Week facebook page.

Enjoy an extra hour in bed
