Talking to people in your street about the idea of playing out is an important first step and will help you gather views and understand any concerns. We advise chatting in the street, door-knocking, leafleting and holding an informal meeting to explain the idea (you could use our template meeting invitation). The important thing is to make sure everyone feels included and consulted from the beginning.

You can read more about this stage in the Playing Out manual.  If you have any questions or would like to talk at any stage of the process, please do give the Playing Out team a call on 0117 953 7167.
