What will you do with the kids over Christmas?

Our children break up from school on Friday and like most mums we'll be looking for ways to entertain them during the holidays.

There are some fantastic family events happening at MediaCityUK, Salford Quays, Manchester from 8-22nd December.

They are all sport theme in the run up to Sports Personality of the Year so the perfect way to burn off some excess energy!

You'll need tickets for these free Celebrate Sport events with the BBC (first come, first served) just go to for more information.

The events are happening from 4-8pm on weekdays and 10-6pm at the weekends.

4pm – 8pm, Weekdays - Come and join in at the Celebrate Sport Playzone in the Studio Block where you can take part in a football radio play; practice your sports commentary; conduct all your favourite BBC Sport theme music; get a sneak preview of the National Football Museum’s exhibits, play a brand new computer football game that helps with your maths or take a penalty in the mascot challenge.

10am – 6pm, Weekends - The National Football Museum in partnership with Celebrate Sport is offering Baby Moves and Movement Matters classes for Budding Busby Babe toddlers and babies.
