The Secret Garden (St Clement's Churchyard), Bournemouth

No dates yet


Local parent, Adele trained as a Playworker in 2010 and has specialised in inclusive outdoor play in urban environments. Adele advocates for unstructured free play for all children. She believes in making public spaces safe and engaging for child-led community play.

In this workshop she will share her playful ethos with stories and tips to help families feel more playful in nature. She believes that caregivers have a vital role in protecting children’s play, and we all have a vital role in protecting nature.

Children are welcome. Please book a ticket for every child and adult who are attending so we can monitor numbers. Adele is willing to repeat the workshop in other outdoor locations if there is interest from local families. 

If there are no tickets left, then please contact us to be put on the waiting list. We will contact you to let you know if there are any cancellations.
