About 5,000 children and teenagers from across Welwyn Hatfield took part in the borough’s first ever Big Summer programme.
The first two weeks of August have been jam-packed with activities to suit all ages and interests – including sports, dance, and music.
There were about 90 activities in various locations.
The highlights included Animal Antics in White Lion Square, Inflatable Fun at Stanborough Park Activity Centre, Pay and Play at Sir Fred’s Sport Centre, and Skate Fest in Hatfield town centre.
Councillor Tony Kingsbury, executive member for policy and culture, said: “Big Summer was all about showcasing the mix of fun things to do, right here in Welwyn Hatfield.

“It was important the activities appealed just as much to older children and teenagers as they did to young families and, who knows, we may have inspired some next generation athletes, artists or musicians.
“Big Summer would not have been possible without the support of our fantastic local partners who, despite not always having the Great British weather on their side, really got into the spirit and made it such a massive success.”
