Little Street

Little Street is a scaled down version of a typical town, inspiring children to explore life in the world around them.

Our play centres feature a supermarket, construction site, police station, theatre, medical centre and more.

We offer a high quality experience by operating pre-defined play sessions and keeping the numbers attending ‘little’. At the end of each play period we take the time and care to restore Little Street back to its original state so that the next group of children will enjoy the ‘wow’ factor; every prop will be returned to the right place to stimulate their curiosity and inventiveness.

Family drop in session

Wednesday 19th February: mini plate placards

The climate emergency is getting worse all the time. But we’re not acting like it. We’re continuing to destroy precious landscapes like the Amazon – vital allies in the fight against climate breakdown. The Amazon is meant to absorb carbon, not produce it!

The key driver of deforestation is agriculture. This means the food we are sold is part of the problem – it’s causing deforestation and making the climate crisis worse. We need your support to demand the UK Government commit to a deadline ending the importation of goods that have caused deforestation.

Come and find out more about our deforestation free food campaign and get involved in the tiny craft craze by making fun mini plate placards with your powerful message, asking leaders to make changes for a climate and nature friendly future.

Drop in between 10.30am and midday.

Suitable for ages 4-14 years. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Free, suggested donation £3 per child.
