Some of the fun activities available across Lichfield will be highlighted at a half-term event in the city.

Market Square in Lichfield will play host to a family day organised by Lichfield District Council’s Leisure Team on May 28. The day will showcase the huge range of sports, classes, facilities and children’s activities which are available in the area.

Visitors will get the chance to find out how to get fit for the summer and try their hand at a number of tater sessions – including mini dance work-outs.

On the day, children can jump around on a bouncy castle for £1 a go. The bouncy castle is just one of the team’s inflatables, which make regular appearances at children’s parties and at Mobile Leisure’s play sessions all over the district.

Keen footballers can also have a free taster game on Leisure’s brand new Panna Football inflatable ring. Played against one opponent, the aim of the game is to score a goal or kick the ball through the other player’s legs – also know as nutmegging.

Neil Turner, Lichfield District Council’s Leisure Services Manger, said:

“Whatever your age, make sure you stop by to have a mini workout – be that a dance, bounce or a kick-about. The Leisure Team will also be on hand to offer expert advice about the huge range of activities and leisure memberships we offer. This is a great way to find out lots of ways to keep your whole family entertained over the summer – from play schemes, to tennis coaching, through to our gyms that are kitted out with all the latest equipment – so make sure you don’t miss it.” 

The Leisure Day will kick off on May 28 from 10am to 4pm at Lichfield’s Market Square.
