A summary
Each session is 11am to 3pm. All sessions are free to any child, let us know if you receive free school meals. Each session includes art, healthy eating at lunch (provided by us, children involved in making healthy options) finished off with performing arts at the end with a view to complete a performance at the Hastings carnival and St Leonards Multi Faith Festival event within the sessions. We enjoy letting young people learn through different art mediums as you can see from our photos we have a successful summer school each year as well as the opportunity for our autumn school holiday club and Christmas clubs. We also offer year round performing arts term time on a Saturday. ***This activity has been funded through the Department for Education’s (DfE) Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme and coordinated by East Sussex County Council. Free places are available for young people eligible for benefits-related free school meals. This eligibility criteria has been defined by the DfE. Additionally young people in several other target cohorts can attend funded places, such as those with SEND or Looked After Children (LAC). Please note, eligibility will be confirmed as part of the booking process.***
About your mentors
Fun, free and friendly!
As a mentor to children and young people who come through Gizmos doors, I am in a unique position of giving support in a safe and dedicated space in Hastings and St. Leonards. Gizmo was established almost twenty years ago to fill in the gap of affordable, positive activities for disadvantaged children. We provide art, performing arts workshops and involvement in many annual community performances and most school holiday activities alongside providing healthy food and education on maintaining a healthy lifestyle in a fun and positive manner. I have worked across agency both with East Sussex County Coucil, Hastings Opportunity Area, HAF, Doms food mission, Sussex police and many more. I am excited to meet new young people and keep our very strong charity alive with lots more sessions to come.

Cancellation Policy
No refunds are given except in the case of a cancellation by the Mentor.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
