Car Free Day 2023

World Car Free Day is Friday 22 September 2023 and it will be marked in London over the weekend of Friday 22 to Sunday 24 September.

London Play is delighted to invite you and your neighbours to get involved. Swap your car for a spacehopper and open your street for play and community fun!

In most boroughs it is easy and free – we can help (!). We are also offering free spacehoppers (or other play equipment) to the first 100 streets that apply. PLUS all groups signing up will go into a prize draw to win a free go kart build and race workshop to be run on YOUR STREET on the day.

The process varies from borough to borough (check our map for how it works where you are);  but will usually involve consulting your neighbours and applying to the council well in advance of the day (at least four to six weeks ahead in most cases).

Our resources zone has step by step instructions, information, downloadable resources, advice and inspiration about how to make the magic happen on your street! Click below to sign up for free.

Get in touch with us for advice, information and to be in to win. What are you waiting for? Hop to it!
