Fun Fest Holiday Club empowers children by giving them a choice about how they spend their school holidays, enabling each child to design their own individual holiday programme.
With activities such as Nerf Challenge, Go Karting, Mission Impossible, Harry Potter Experience, Mad About Science, Sports Action, Great Outdoors, Creative Cooks, Pottery, Animaltastic, Treasure Quest, Sublime Science, Jewellery Making, Beauty School, I'm a Kid Get Me Out of Here and many many more, there is something to appeal to every child.
Fun Fest Holiday Clubs provide working parents with the solution to their holiday childcare dilemmas; high-quality Ofsted registered childcare which suits all their children and which is available for full working days for the full duration of the school holidays.
The high demand for holiday childcare services, combined with insufficient supply across the UK makes this a very attractive market and franchisees can earn a fantastic return for operating for 11 weeks per year.
This is a flexible opportunity as franchisees can choose to run one club on a part-time basis, to run several clubs across their territory or to run all year round services such as wraparound care and parties.
What is the Fun Fest model?
We predominantly run Ofsted registered holiday camps on school premises for 3-12 year olds in the Easter, Summer and half term holidays offering a menu of different activities for children to choose from. They are staffed by qualified and experienced childcare professionals as well as students and young people who have been trained in safeguarding and first aid.
They offer parents flexible holiday childcare for children of all ages, preferences and abilities in an energetic and fun atmosphere, balanced with a safe, controlled environment.
What are the benefits of running a franchise?
It takes a huge amount of time, money and effort to start a new business from scratch. If you are looking for an exciting new challenge and want to run your own business without the risk and stress of doing it all on your own, then franchising is a great option for you.
The Fun Fest team have decades of childcare business experience between them and have already done the ground work so they can train and support franchisees in setting up their businesses as quickly, efficiently and profitably as possible.
Who is in control?
Franchisees own and operate the business in their area, managing all the operational aspects of running a Fun Fest Holiday Club. Fun Fest Franchising retains control over setting and monitoring the quality and standards of the clubs.
We have strict policies and systems which must be adhered to for ensuring the safety and well-being of the children in our care.
We also retain control of the Fun Fest brand and how our services are marketed and sold.
Fun Fest Franchising (UK) Ltd is the registered organisation for Ofsted, and as such we retain the Ofsted licence for each franchise. Franchisees are expected to operate in full accordance with Ofsted standards and procedures. Training and support are provided so franchisees understand what this means.
What does it cost?
Each franchise licence costs £19,999 plus vat together with an ongoing management fee of 10% of sales plus vat.
What do I get for this?

The franchise package includes in-club and business training, a school-finding service, the club website and booking system, a marketing support package, tool kits of resources, franchise networking opportunities as well as the ongoing support of your Regional Director.
