Play Day

 

Play Day is an amazing annual event organised by Burnley Leisure & Culture. It takes place on the first Wednesday in August, celebrating children’s right to play in a safe space. Thousands of children and their families come out to play in parks across the UK, and Burnley’s Playday is one of the highlights in our summer calendar.

The event is packed with fun activities for families to enjoy, and it’s free of charge! For specific details about times and venues, call Alexis Turner 01282 664444 or email info@blcgroup.co.uk

Play Streets

 

Play Streets are neighbour-led short road closures that create a safe space for children to play freely together on their doorstep. These temporary closures allow kids to play without organized games or activities, fostering community bonding and providing a fun environment for families.

If you’re interested in starting play streets in your area, check out the resources and advice available on Playing Out’s website and email info@blcgroup.co.uk for your local toolkit.
