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

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