National Play Day is a celebration of the importance of play in the lives of children. Play Day events will be taking place all over England on 7th August. In Cheltenham it is the Play Development Team of the Council who have organised all the activities
There will be lots of fun-filled things to do - you can try your hand at circus skills or have a go on the climbing wall amongst other activities including, giant garden games, arts and crafts, and much much more. Performances from local acts will also take place throughout the day.
Cabinet Member for Sport and Culture, Cllr Rowena Hay said: “As well as promoting children's right to play, the campaign this year is highlighting that outdoor play is crucial for children's health, well-being and happiness. We’d like to encourage lots of people to come along and benefit from a day of play.”
National Play Day costs £2 per child (children aged 3yrs. and under get free entrance). Families can purchase their wrist bands on the day at the front of Pittville Pump Room.
