It’s National Grandparent’s day on Sunday October 2nd and we’re celebrating in style with FREE activities!



Grandparents have a lifetime of knowledge and wisdom which usually comes with epic stories and heart-warming tales to make us laugh, cry and everything in between. Tees Active wants to help you show your love and appreciation by offering an opportunity to treat their grandparents to a free activity and create fantastic memories together…..that’s right FREE!


Choose from the following activities and get ready to enjoy the experience…

Ice Skating
The Forum is famous for its ice rink and has welcomed generations of skaters through its doors, so there must be some silver skaters out there who want to get the boots back out and give this a go!
