The funding is in place so Playday 2018 is ON! 

As usual it's on the first Wednesday in August, which this year is Wednesday 1st August 10am to 3pm.























The really poor weather on the day for the 2017 had a huge effect on the event, but that dampen the spirts and didn't stop many coming along and enjoying the many FREE attractions and activitiees on offer. 2018 promised to be bigger and better than ever (if the weather allows) so we might exceed the massive success of 2016 when we had 7000 children attending!                    


What is Playday?

Playday is the national day for play, traditionally held on the first Wednesday in August 10am - 3pm.


Now in its 30th year, Playday is the biggest play sector event in the UK, and possibly Europe! As well as a celebration of children's right to play, Playday is a campaign that highlights the importance of play in children's lives. Playday is coordinated by Play England, in partnership with Play Wales, Play Scotland and PlayBoard Northern Ireland
