Shiremoor Adventure Playground, Brenkley Ave, Shiremoor, North Tyneside NE27 0PR.

Free event – all welcome!

Hosted by Shiremoor Adventure Playground, this play policy forum is a unique opportunity for everyone in the north east and beyond to come together to discuss the issues – both nationally and locally – for the play sector including children’s play in schools, the particular benefits of staffed play provision and more. You’ll also get a tour of the Adventure Playground!

Speakers include Nicola Butler from Play England, Karen Benjamin of the Playwork Foundation, Kath Smith from the ‘Remembering the Past, Resourcing the Future’, project, Claire Twinn, from Waterville Primary School and Keeks McGarry, Manager of Shiremoor Adventure Playground.

The forum is part of a roadshow of discussion forums organised by

Play England and the Playwork Foundation taking place across the country to consult with all those involved in and impacted by children’s play – to help shape a manifesto for play, coordinate campaigning for better play provision, and share latest thinking and developments in play.

These discussions will feed into and shape a national manifesto for Play to help put play back on the political agenda.

This event is free! All welcome! The Adventure Playground are very kindly provided refreshments and lunch. Donations to Shiremoor are welcome.
