Thumbs Up It's Thursday

Established over 10 years ago and very well-known amongst the Kingston community, Thumbs Up It’s Thursday is an initiative designed to drive footfall into businesses in the town centre during school holidays with fun activities aimed at 2-11 year olds.

Kingston First promote the campaign, investing in marketing channels directly targeted at parents in the area and produce a printed leaflet detailing all the activities and times that gets distributed around the town. Our marketing activity includes large-format posters around the town, adverts in parent magazines and lots of digital advertising across parent-led social sites, facebook and twitter.

If you would like to take part, all you need to do is come up with an activity that children can take part in. Popular activities in the past have included scavenger hunts, face painting, craft activities, kids eat for £1/free, drama and dance workshops, cookery sessions and photo booths.

All you need to do is send us your activities by the submission deadlines for each period and we will collate everything into one handy leaflet for parents and promote them across our website and social media.
