What is BACE Holidays?

BACE Holidays stands for Barnet. Active. Creative. Engaging. Holidays! 

BACE Holidays is organised and run by Barnet Council and Young Barnet Foundation and paid for by Department for Education.

BACE holidays support children and young people aged 5 – 16 who received free school meals in the borough of Barnet.

School holidays can be pressure points for some families due to increased costs and reduced incomes. BACE Holidays provide engaging and healthy activities with an emphasis on physical, emotional, and nutritional wellbeing during the school holidays. Activities may include football, cricket, arts and crafts, performing arts and lots more.

*All delivery will adhere to current COVID government guidance. 

Cost: FREE
