Playday is the national day for play in the UK, traditionally held on the first Wednesday in August. This year’s Playday takes place on Wednesday 2 August 2017.

This year also marks Playday’s 30th birthday!

On Playday, thousands of children and their families get out to play at hundreds of community events across the UK.

From small-scale community events to thousands of children taking part in events organised in parks and open spaces  – Playday is celebrated by each community in a way that suits them.

As well as a celebration of children’s right to play, Playday is a campaign that highlights the importance of play in children’s lives.

Playday is coordinated by Play England, Play Wales, Play Scotland and PlayBoard Northern Ireland.
