The soft play area in Gillett Square


Gillett Square will be transformed into a giant playground again this half term, and parents are invited to bring their kids along.

There will also be other activities and workshops on each day at the Dalston hub, with the chance to try your hand at giant origami, get some top table tennis tips and learn to play chess on a giant chess board.

The sessions will run on Saturday February 15 and then from Monday February 17 until Saturday February 22 from noon until 5pm.
