Porridge & Play Govan

Welcome to the Porridge & Play Govan Page!

Porridge & Play Govan is an intergenerational Storyplay project for families with 3-12 year olds in the Govan area of Glasgow.

It is part of our project Big Porridge & Play Glasgow, which is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.

Porridge & Play Govan was due to start in 2020, however we had to take the project online. We are delighted that it is now starting in autumn 2022 at The Pearce Institute (G51 3UU). Licketyspit has previously worked at Riverside Primary, Ibrox Primary and Nursery, and Elder Park. You may also have taken part in our online sessions.

With the help of our partnersStoryplay Champions and our friends in Govan, we’ll meet together for 6 weeks of exciting Storyplay sessions filled with games, rhymes, songs, imaginary play and food! Get in touch for more information or join with the buttons below.

Starts Tuesday 11th October (4-6.15pm).

Bookings now open for free taster sessions at schools, nurseries, youth groups and other organisations. Get in touch!
