What’s happening in Hull?

Hull has a street play policy in place, you can read more about it here.

As of June 2019, there are at least 6 streets regularly playing out in the area!

In February 2019, there was a council initiative to get children outside and broadcast the playing out scheme – city-wide hopscotch!

You can contact resident activator Emma Sarjo to find out how you can get your street playing out. Read Emma’s story for resident inspiration here!

To find others playing out in Hull join the Hull Playing Out Facebook Group.
