Playing Out Workshop

Are you interested in your street becoming a traffic-free ‘play street’ for a couple of hours a week or month? If so, go along to an informal workshop run by ‘Playing Out’ at Westbury Park Primary School, Bayswater Avenue, 1.30-3.15pm, Monday 4th February.

For more information on this or for help with getting something started on your street, contact Ellie on 0117 9537167 or email:

The ‘Playing Out’ project has received some funding from the Redland, Cotham and Bishopston Neighbourhood Partnership to provide support to residents in the area wanting to organise after-school street play sessions, including providing road closure ‘kits’.  A couple of streets in Bishopston have already started doing this regularly, giving children and adults a chance to use their street for play and socialising.

‘Playing Out’ is looking for further venues to run free workshops for residents this year – if you think your school or community centre might be willing to host a workshop or you would be interested in attending one, please contact or phone 0117 9537167. If you venture over to South Bristol you can also pop into the new Playing Out ‘shop’ to find out more @ 148 North St, Bedminster, BS3 1HA.
