What's on this Half Term? Check out HOOP!


We’ve all woken up and thought, ‘What on earth will I do with the kids today?’


There are so many great things going on in Tameside and Manchester but they're not always easy to find!


HOOP is a new app designed for families to search for local activities & events that are relevant to you.


Find activities for children all over Greater Manchester - including "what's on today" - you can download the app to your phone and use it without creating an account - simply allow it to see your location and enter the ages of your children and it will then find all activities for them!


The information you need

When you come across an interesting event you need to know that it’s right for your family. Hoop has all the information you need to have a fun day out. Like the ages of children that attend, pricing and booking information, travel times and more.



Set the age of your children and Hoop will make sure you only see events that are right for them. You won’t find Hoop recommending baby yoga for an 8 year old or a drama workshop for a newborn.



Looking for something cheap? How about something to do in the evening after school? Or what about just a short walk from home? Hoop has powerful filters that help you find the right event given any situation you might find yourself in.


Hoop Picks

Hoop Picks uncovers things we think your kids will love. A list of the best things to do chosen for your family from over 100,000 activities. Your Hoop Picks is updated everyday with new ideas, so you’ll never be short of inspiration.


Saved Events

There are lots of things happening on Hoop, so there’s a good chance you’ll find more than one thing that takes your fancy. Save is a handy feature that allows you to quickly shortlist the events that interest you most to make it easier to plan the perfect family day out.



We've made it easy to share the events you find on Hoop with friends and other families. Tap 'Share with Friends' and send an event link to anyone you like. If they have Hoop it will open the app and the right screen, and if not it will open a beautiful web page like this one for Kids with Brains.
