Playgroups and classes

Norwich and the surrounding areas are a fantastic place for bringing up children and there is plenty going on  children.

Below is a list of all the local playgroups and drop in clinics throughout the week and also details of all the children’s activities classes available across our area. Please contact the organisers directly if you would like to find out further information or to confirm class times or costs.

If you know of any other classes or groups which are not already listed, then please contact us here. Basic listings are free. ’Featured’ listings are £10 per month. For our full advertising rates then please click here.


At Kixx our goal is simple:
To have a positive impact on every child at every opportunity.

We do this through an innovative programme which offers a high energy, fun, age-appropriate introduction to physical activity through football.

Our programme has been carefully designed for both boys and girls between the ages of 2 and 9 years of age.

Kixx Academies
Our academies are 40 minute sessions run weekly. We do a block of 8 weeks, then a 1 week break, then another block and so on. You pay a one-off membership fee of £19.95 which covers your child’s football kit (shirt, shorts, socks) and then a direct debit of £24 per month. In effect it works out at around £6 per session. The bookings have a full money back guarantee – if after your first session you think it really isn’t for you, then you can get a full refund, plus your child keeps the football kit as a “thank you” for trying us.

Our Venues
We are adding more venues all the time. Currently we have academies at:
Loddon Jubilee Hall
NR14 6NB
Goals (Hall Road)
NR1 2GB
Framingham Earl High School
NR14 7QP
Sprowston Community Academy
NR7 8NE
