Give it a Go sessions

Our Give it a Go sessions are just one of many things we love to shout about here at Channel.

For just £15, you can spend 1 hour with us and experience a new activity whilst having plenty of fun.

You can hire watercraft and access Give it a Go sessions in a variety of water and land activites, across both our centres, in Minehead and Taunton.

Our job is to make activities easily accessible to anyone; we love what we do – and we want you to too!
