Every October we stage the London Adventure Play Awards, which usually includes a dedicated category for play streets.
In 2021, instead, we have a special play street treat: the West End premiere of our short film documenting the unique Play Street Carousel lockdown project!
Watch it here:
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.”
