Come along to the Southbank Centre on the 14th, 15th and 16th of September for a weekend of play for adults and families alike. The Clore Ballroom will be filled with drop-in fun combining games with other art forms: balls that make sounds, lights that watch you move, custard that needs punching, boxes that need stacking and restacking, giant birds that just want a giant nest to rest in. Plus there’ll be scheduled games throughout: deceptive tours, frozen gargoyles, performances and more.
All the games have been created by artists and designers working to make them as much fun to play as they are to watch, and most of them are free, so drop by to see what’s going on and get involved.
Then on the 17th, join us for a conference investigating play in public space, and discover more about some of the games and themes explored across the weekend. You can buy your tickets for the conference right now.
