Youngsters enjoyed the sunshine at the town hall’s Heatwave scheme as this year line-up was announced.
Arsenal football coaching sessions, a reading challenge and arts, crafts and crockery are among activities planned as part of Islington Council’s annual summer programme for children.
Every school in the borough will be given details of events to pass on to pupils and parents, with information also available at council-run buildings.
Physical activities will include ice skating and a play day on August 6. There will also be a “Beastly Islington” exhibition at the Islington Museum and lots of chances to win prizes.
Joe Caluori, the council’s executive member for children and families, said: “In the school summer holidays, it’s important that we make sure there are lots of free and low-cost activities for children and young people in the borough.
