In 2011, the first playing out sessions in Oxford were held – you can read about the first one in the Oxford Mail.

People living in Oxford can apply for a road closure using the council’s procedure for street parties, you can use a single form for several dates.  If you are interested making Oxford’s streets friendlier places you may also be interested in the Oxford Streets for People initiative, run by Oxford Civic Society.

To contact others who are organising street play sessions in Oxford you can join the Playing Out Oxford Facebook Group.
