See how the street play movement is growing across the UK.

Find out what’s happening where you live and if there are streets already playing out. We know that there are many active streets not listed here so please let us know of anything you are doing so we can add it to the map. You can also check our Local Authority Directory to see if your council has a street play policy yet.

What’s happening in East Sussex?

There is not yet a county wide play street policy but if you live in Lewes you can apply to play out through the district council – see more here. Or in Eastbourne you can have a one-off session using their street party policy – more details here.  If you live elsewhere in the county and are keen to start playing out see here for tips on how to get your council on board.  If you need further help or know of anything else happening in the area, please contact us.
