May Half Term: 10 ways to play

** This event has now passed. Please visit our activities page for our current events **


Whether you’re 4 or 44, playing makes you feel good! It helps all of us learn, connect, and explore how things work in our world. And sometimes it can take us in new and unexpected directions.

We’re planning a summer full of play, starting with 5 days of making, inventing and general silliness out on Millennium Square this May Half Term.



29 May - 2 Jun

How Much



Millennium Square, Bristol Harbourside

Who for



10:30am - 4pm

From Monday 29th May through to Friday 2nd June, find us on the Square with everything you need to create your own playground! You'll have heaps of fun with hula hoops (the plastic hoops, not the snacks!), skipping ropes, balls, chalks and more, and we'll throw in some simple ideas to get you started on your adventures.

Feel free to try things out, make up the rules and be as silly as you like.

We’d love you to share your ways to play with us too. Fill out a postcard at the event or share on socials.

We'll be adding to our big Book of Play, filled with all of our favourite prompts. This will come out on the road with us to fetes, festivals and fun days in July and August.


Need to Know

  • Drop-in at any time between 10:30am-4pm

  • How you play is up to you, but our staff will be on hand to help
  • The square may be quite noisy and messy but you can always find your own quiet space to work
