Classes from Spanish to yoga on offer

FREE family events are on offer in Hackney’s libraries to celebrate a festival which starts tomorrow.

The Family Learning Festival runs until the end of the month at all the borough’s libraries.

Parents and children alike can join together in a range of activities from music and poetry workshops to yoga.

Classes in useful skills including Spanish or Maths are also available.

Cabinet member for community services, Jonathan McShane, said: “Hackney libraries offer a fun way to learn as a family.”

Most sessions do not need booking but all children attending the sessions must be accompanied by an adult.
