The winners for the prestigious 2018 national ‘What’s On 4 Kids Awards’’ were recently revealed at an inspiring, high profile ceremony, hosted by Natwest at their impressive Bishopgate location in London. Kathy Doolan, Founder & MD of Rhythm Time was delighted to receive the prestigious ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ during the afternoon of celebrations. The Business awards are designed to recognise the leading classes and clubs for children and the inspiring professionals leading them across the UK.


The event was made even more special with the fabulous Dick and Dom, popular Childrens TV presenters, who helped to facilitate the awards and provided lots of humorous photo opportunities!


“This is fantastic news for Rhythm Time, I’m a strong believer that music is fundamental for every childs development and they’re never too young to start their musical journey. I'm also immensely proud to have encouraged so many talented women into this important sector and provided them with the opportunity to run their own successful Rhythm Time franchises, helping the development of local children. I’m delighted to be recognised for my achievements and want to thank all my dedicated staff and fabulous franchisees for making this the fantastic organisation it is,” says Kathy.


The awards took place alongside the launch of the Children’s Activities Association’s 2nd ‘Watchmefly’ Childrens Activities Week. From 13th to 17th May 2019, little ones across the UK will have the opportunity to take part in sponsored challenges at their classes to help other children by supporting Caudwell Children and the Children’s Activities Association. Dick and Dom will be the Ambassadors for the event and will be making an appearance at venues across the UK. “We are honoured to be part of a such a wonderful celebration and a worthwhile cause. We encourage as many children, parents and children’s activities leaders as possible to get involved,” says Dick and Dom. Please register your interest today at
