Porridge & Play Whiteinch
Welcome to the Porridge & Play Whiteinch Page!
Porridge & Play Whiteinch is an intergenerational Storyplay project for families with 3-12 year olds in the Whiteinch area of Glasgow.
It is part of our project Big Porridge & Play Glasgow, which is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
Porridge & Play Whiteinch started in 2017 and after a hiatus over the course of the pandemic, we are delighted to announce that it is BACK in autumn 2022 at Whiteinch Library (G14 9RL).
With the help of our partners, Storyplay Champions and our friends in Whiteinch, we’ll be back for another block of exciting Storyplay sessions filled with games, rhymes, songs, imaginary play and food!
Starts Wednesday 12th October, 4-6.15pm
What previous participants say
“We learned a lot of new games and we keep on playing them during daytime as well and we both enjoy it. We are from Azerbaijan and we have not had chance to go there since long time and whenever we want to go we use this Magic Ball. That was a good idea!”
“My children especially like the dressing up and the visit to the Tall Ship”
“When is BPPG gonna come again?”
