Play is a fundamental part of childhood development: it builds confidence in assessing risk, it helps with physical and emotional development, it cultivates resilience.
Sadly, many children don’t get the opportunity to play outside. This can be due to safety concerns, lack of access to open space or simply that it's not part of their daily routine. We offer a variety of options to get children outside and let them have some fun!
Open access to the Playground is available Monday to Friday, 16:00-17:30 during term, and 10:00-15:00 in holidays. A free lunch is provided at 12:00.
You can use this if you are at home, if your child is over 8 years old, if you are happy for your child to come and go as they please, and if you have registered on our online booking system.
Please remember that we can close open access at any time and ask your child to leave (e.g. due to staff shortages, excess numbers, bad behaviour or weather conditions).
Our popular Club U14 youth club is for children and young people aged from 8 to 13. It runs once a month during term time, from 18:30-20:30.
The sessions are run by our bank of volunteer workers. Pay on the door, with tuck shop and hot snacks available.
Please see entry prices.
Held every Wednesday from 10:00 during school holidays when we're running our playschemes.
These are simply fantastic days of fun, when everyone can come along and let themselves go.
