Wrexham will once again be celebrating National Playday with an event held in Wrexham town centre, on Wednesday 7th August from 12:00 to 4:00 on Queen Square and Llwyn Isaf (the Guildhall field).
Playday is for people of all ages including babies and toddlers, older children, teenagers, parents, professionals and grandparents, all are invited to join in this free and playful event. Organisations involved in children’s play and playwork from across Wrexham will be coming together to provide a wide range of playful opportunities, including favourites like the giant sandpit, mass water fight, and junk play.
The aim of this event is to highlight children’s right to play, encouraging people to recognise the value of playing to children, their families and their local communities. In doing this Wrexham’s Playday event is part of the local authority’s continued commitment to try ensure all children across the county borough have enough time, space and permission to play.
Approximately 4000 people visited our Playday event last year and we aim to make this year’s even bigger and better, but this can only happen if people come along and join in the fun. All we ask is that you bring along a playful mood and some clothes you don’t mind getting wet and messy. In the past families have brought along picnics and stayed all afternoon!
