The Higgins Bedford have joined in with the Summer of SEND to deliver a number of free and fun online activities for children and young people with disabilities and/or special educational needs, which will run from 26th July – 23rd August.
Children and young people are invited to take part in a series of pre-recorded video workshops filled with movement, music and games themed around transport. Workshops include going on a sensory adventure to discover hidden treasure, getting crafty to make hot air balloons, dancing like aeroplanes and bikes, and much more.
To round off the summer holidays, Bedford Borough Council are working with Spectrum Community Arts to hold a Zoom celebration that will be a fun, accessible adventure for all to enjoy. There will be dance, drama, music and games, with plenty of transport-themed fun. Places for this free virtual performing arts workshop are limited and must be booked at https://app.loveadmin.com/ThirdpartyRegistration.aspx?groupID=334C908CCC0B9D07DE62B4D26D744B10
These workshops are part of Bedford Borough Council’s Summer of SEND, a celebration of all things Special Educational Needs and/or Disability (SEND) across Bedford.

Councillor Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said: “The Summer of SEND is a fantastic initiative that we’re incredibly excited to be involved in at The Higgins Bedford. If you’re a parent carer of a young person with Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability, then take a look at some of the great pre-recorded activities that we’ll have available from 26 July. Our workshops have been pre-recorded so that they can be watched at a time that suits you.”
All video workshops will be uploaded to The Higgins Bedford website at www.thehigginsbedford.org.uk each week of the summer holidays for children and young people to watch at their leisure.
