Newport Live, has secured additional funding to host even more exciting holiday activities throughout the summer. Funded by Newport City Council through a £5million Welsh Government Summer of Fun fund, this year’s range of events, activities and programs across sport, leisure, drama , arts and culture promises to be more exciting, varied and above all accessible than ever.
This year’s summer of fun includes activities across the city, whether you’re planning a visit to one of our centers or joining us at one of our community events. From Welly Walking to Crafty Saturdays, to intensive swimming lessons, multi-sport camps, youth track cycling sessions and with the Big Splash taking over so many parts of downtown Newport on the weekend of the 23rd /July 24, this summer promises to be our most fun yet.
Andrea Ovey, Business Development Manager at Newport Live, said: “The additional support from the Summer of Fun Fund means that in addition to the activities we run each year, which are always popular, this year we have been able to add new some, many of which are completely free or heavily subsidized.
Our Rookie Fitness courses, for example, offer young people the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a fitness instructor in one of our centers, and benefit from a huge 50% discount; our cycle track sessions are completely free and the cost of our intensive swimming lessons has also been reduced.
The Riverfront Theater will also be hosting free theater performances and film screenings for select community groups throughout the summer school holidays.”
The engagement and activities provided by Newport Live over the summer complement work throughout the year to increase physical activity levels for children, youth and adults, engagement in the arts and improve their mental and emotional well-being.
Newport Live is a charity, which means that the money they earn is fully reinvested in the services and facilities they provide, so all Newport Live customers support the local community through the achievement of these projects and activities.
