2021 Play Street of the Year
In the stop-start year of 2021 we staged the West End premiere of our short film documenting the unique Play Street Carousel lockdown project.
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.”
