The festive period is over and yet again we welcome another year – hello 2019!

We have a wonderful range of classes in the area including mindfulness, dance, theatre, art & crafts and a range of brilliant sports.

Most classes start early to mid January and end mid March for the Easter break – please check with individual organisations for exact dates and prices.

We have endeavoured to ensure all classes are correct (as of January 2018) but please do get in touch if you see any inaccuracies or would like your own class added.

Before booking, it’s always worth checking to see if clubs offer any special offers such as trial classes, early bird, sibling or even a QPMs discount!  Most classes that charge by the term will also allow you to join mid-term if there is space for a reduced rate.

Many of the local sports centres also hold a range of weekday and weekend classes, which we have linked at the end of this page.

*Please note, some of the class descriptions are from the class organisers and are not necessarily the opinion of QPM’s.
