What’s happening in Islington?

Residents in Islington can apply for a temporary street play order for up to three hours per week. Applications will be considered four times a year on 30 January, 31 May, 15 July and 31 October. The council provides cones and signs and will come and help you set up your first session.

This comes after the success of the street play policy launched in April 2014 – read the story from the Islington Gazette.

You can connect with other people playing out in Islington through the Islington Playing Out Facebook Group!
