GLASGOW Life has announced its Summer of Fun programme aimed at families and young people during the holidays. 

Families in Glasgow can enjoy a wide range of free and low-cost activities at museums, libraries, community centres, and sport venues across the city this summer. 

For those looking to get active, free Game Time sessions are available at Glasgow Club Donald Dewar, Glasgow Club Springburn, Penilee Community Centre, and Govanhill Neighbourhood Centre allowing children aged five to 11 to enjoy games, sports and creative activities.

For children crawling to five years old, PlayGym sessions will be available at Kelvin Hall or the Palace of Art as a great way to introduce gymnastics to children. 

From Monday, June 26, families can also swim together for free at selected sessions at Glasgow Club pools, with Glasgow Life also removing the need to book swimming sessions from this date.

A variety of fun activities will also be available at Glasgow Life's museums. 

Mini Museum Explorers allows three to five-year-olds to play, sing and be creative while discovering the collections at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Riverside Museum, The Burrell Collection, and The Gallery of Modern Art.

There will also be behind-the-scenes tours at the Glasgow Museum Resource Centre (GMRC) which has rooms of armour that aren't on display and there will be autism-friendly museum sessions.

Meanwhile, the Summer Reading Challenge is back at libraries across the city, which this year is sports themed. 

Ready, Set, Read! encourages children aged four to 12 to keep reading in the summer, and they can be in with a chance of earning prizes and winning a medal. 

Regular library sessions for families will continue throughout the summer, and children under five can enjoy songs, stories and rhymes at Bookbug. 

Bailie Annette Christie, chair of Glasgow Life, said: "Summer is a great time for families and young people to experience what Glasgow has to offer, from free family swimming to getting active at a Game Time session.

"Children can also experience the wonders of Glasgow Life’s museums and libraries, whether that’s through our Mini Museum Explorers programme or taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge."
