Easter Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) 2023
Funded by the Department of Education (DfE), HAF offers free enriching holiday activities with a healthy meal included each day. Eligible participants can access the equivalent of up to four hours per day, over four days of the school Easter holidays. However places are limited, so we recommend bookings are placed early to avoid disappointment.
They have everything available from coding workshops and drama academies, to family cooking workshops and outdoor and adventurous activities, and of course there’s a variety of local Ofsted registered play schemes.
Launch of Brighton & Hove Easter HAF promotion and bookings are now open!

Ensure your families have a HAF booking code
A unique HAF booking code is required for each eligible child.
If the child took part in the HAF 2022 programme, the same unique HAF booking code should be used. Email HAF@brighton-hove.gov.uk, with the full name and date of birth of the child, to request the code be resent.
Those who are new to HAF must first apply for their unique HAF booking code by visiting www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/haf.
Support your families to understand what is available and book on
