We are organising various ‘play dates’ as well as an end of project pop up display.
These will be opportunities to experience a range of childhood games from various communities. They will be open to all ages; providing fun and excitement to youngsters and a sociable get together and perhaps a trip down memory lane for older attendees.
Here we list our FREE public events but we are also coming to community centres and schools in Hackney, Newham, Redbridge and Tower Hamlets. If you would like to arrange a session with us please get in touch; email olivia[at]raiseup.org.uk or call 020 8981 8811
