Congleton Play-day


Every summer, CCP hosts a Play Day in the Pedestrian Area from 10am-2pm. The day is based on the National Play Day which is taking place all over the country in August and is a celebration of

children’s right to play, highlighting the importance of play and fun in children’s lives.

Play opportunities don’t need to involve expensive activities, costly toys, or trips to far-off destinations. It is often the simplest ideas, the free and found opportunities, which offer the most fun, and are the most developmentally beneficial for children and young people.

Activities include circus skills, giant Connex and other board games which have been kindly lent by Bromley Farm Community Centre. There will be general arts and crafts activities for active minds organised by the Electric Picture House, a children’s book swap, circus skills workshops, and Jo-anne Bayley School of Dance offer fitness dance classes, as well as Ruby’s Fund mobile soft play van who are also in attendance.

This free event is organised by Congleton Community Projects and has been supported by Congleton Partnership and Congleton Inclosure Trust. If you run an organisation or have a business that you feel could contribute to the day, please let us know.
