Every October we stage the London Adventure Play Awards, which usually includes a dedicated category for play streets.
This year, instead, we have a special play street treat: the West End premiere of our short film documenting the unique Play Street Carousel lockdown project!
Groups from participating streets are invited to join us on 28 October at the Prince Charles Cinema. Get in touch for more details: email@example.com
Here’s some inspiration from past winners
2019: KYNASTON RD, ENFIELD
Enfield’s Kynaston Road was named London’s Play Street of the Year with a low-key film showing the simple pleasures of playing in a traffic-free street, even when it rains. The movie-style ‘clapper board’ award came with a prize of £100 for play equipment for the street.
Kynaston Road resident Tia, 7 said:
“I like play street because you get to ride your bike and play on the road. It’s my favourite in the summer when it doesn’t rain. I want to live on the street forever and be the person who looks after play street with my friends.”
