In June 2014 a street in Kentish Town held its first play street, you can read about it in the Kentish Towner and they are now planning regular street play sessions.  If you are in Camden and interested in starting street play where you live, then Kentish Town Playstreets are happy for you to get in touch.  You can find out more about the council’s play street policy here.

The council e-mail address for help and advice is: playstreets@camden.gov.uk.
