Amazing intu Lakeside Kids Club this half term!


Children will be kept entertained with fantastic new skills to try out at home during the half term holidays, thanks to free workshops in everything from cooking to coding at intu Lakeside.

As part of intu’s mission to ‘make it amazing’ for families this half term, experts at the shopping centre will be running a packed week of exciting events to help children pick up fun new skills and make something amazing like pom-pom pets.
