It’s always a good time of year to lark around The Whitworth and Whitworth Park in our book. This summer holidays however we’re spoiled for choice with free creative activities galore exploring the art of play every day.
A daily Splash Studio will feature water walls, tables and channels to lark about it. Meanwhile, for the non-walking tiddlers, sensory play sessions take place indoors.
There are also special events across the summer for greatreasons to return. A Grand (parents) Day Out on Friday 2 August, comes complete with Age Friendly volunteers, extra seating and a cup of tea on The Whitworth. On 30 July and 10 August Mossa Movement host an hour of creative dance, open to all children and families with additional needs. For more boogying head to the Silent Disco on 14 August for families and children with additional needs.
On National Play Day on 7 August additional playtime activities include water pistol painting and bubble art. Night owls meanwhile should head to the Playtime Late on 22 August for an evening of music, games and play.
Wild Things will love the My Wild City: Family Bug Hunt on 21 August to find out more about the teeny creatures that live in Whitworth Park.
