6 July 2015

The sun is shining and although it’s nice and hot outside, the Pod soft play at YMCA Hawker is still a great place to come to play, cool down and let off some steam.

Starting from 20 July, we are offering lots of extras with your visit to the Pod every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Also, we’ve got some new Pod party options, new pricing structure for under 1’s and pre-booking for the holidays. 

Pre-book your play session in the Pod

Throughout the summer holidays (Mon 20 July – Fri 28 August), you can also pre-book your play session in the Pod. Book by calling in at the centre or call Reception on 020 8296 9747.
