Picnic & Play and Book play are versions of our popular Porridge & Play sessions for 3-8's with parents/carers (older/younger brothers and sisters welcome too!) 

These drama-led play sessions are based on the Lickety Playcard repertoire of games, rhymes, songs and imaginary play. They also include a delicious, communal picnic!

There is no cost for these events but you must BOOK and some of the events will be booked via a ballot system as there is such high demand and limited places. Please check the event page on Facebook for specific details of how to book.
