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.
A new street play policy was launched in April 2014. The story was covered in the Islington Gazette.
Residents in Islington can apply for a temporary street play order for up to three hours per week- the council has provided detailed guidance on its play streets page. 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.
Contact with other people playing out in Islington through the Islington Playing Out Facebook Group.
