Summer Play Days

Congleton Town Council is thrilled to announce the start of its summer festivities by hosting weekly play days in the town centre during the 2024 Summer School Holidays. Families can look forward to an array of free, fun-filled activities.

Organiser, Rachel McCarthy, Town Centre and Events Officer said: “These six play days will take place every Tuesday of the school summer holiday from 10.30am-2.30pm in the pedestrian area. Each week will feature a different theme, complete with activities to match. Best of all, there’s no need to drive out of town—everything is local and conveniently located right on your doorstep. We can’t wait to see you there!”

Mark your calendar with the exciting lineup:

  • Tuesday 23 July – Drumming and Music Day
  • Tuesday 30 July – Junk Modelling Day
  • Tuesday 6 August – Olympic Games Day
  • Tuesday 13 August – Traditional Play Day (with Community Projects)
  • Tuesday 20 August – Photo Snappy Day
  • Tuesday 27 August – Comic Art and Flyaway Day

For the past few years, Congleton Town Council has collaborated with Congleton Community Projects to host a Play Day during the summer holidays, traditionally held in early August to celebrate National Play Day, which falls on 13 August this year. Families can expect even more fun and excitement. The town council have secured funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund to stage the six events.

The town council is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to contribute to the success of the play days. The additional support will be invaluable in ensuring each event is fun filled for all the young visitors. Local groups and community organisations are encouraged to join in if they have activities to enrich the theme. If you would like to get involved, contact Rachel McCarthy for more information.
