Porridge & Play Ruchill is back!

Coming September/October 2022

Drumroll please!!

We are excited to announce that Porridge & Play will be BACK in Ruchill for autumn 2022!

Sessions will run on Saturday afternoons at the Pavilion, in collaboration with North United Communities

We will have a 6-week block starting on Saturday 15th October.

How can I take part?

Families can join our Children & Families Network to get further information and reminders nearer the start of the project.

The launch session will be open to all. You will be able to sign up for the following sessions at the launch.

If we are over subscribed, we will prioritise families with children between 3-8 years living in the local area.

We can’t wait to see lots of our old friends – and make some new ones!

Free taster sessions!

Schools, nurseries, community groups, youth work and family clubs can book a free taster session in September.

We are also looking for Storyplay Champion volunteers to support the sessions!

Storyplay Champions are parents, carers, children’s professionals and other volunteers who train in the Storyplay approach and support our team of specialised Actor-Pedagogue to deliver our Porridge & Play sessions.

Volunteer with us

I am feeling better because if I think I am doing some useful things I am feeling much better and during the session meeting some new people and absorbing their changing, week by week. And week by week mothers are talking more, they know me and ask how are you. It is good, I think they feel better too.

My experience as a volunteer with Licketyspit is one of the most remarkable experiences, as the sessions invests in the future through enhancing children’s imagination and creativity.

Asim, Volunteer 2019

It just helps everybody to connect and to see myself as a child. It’s something that’s helping with the bonding with my children. It’s usually very difficult…[and this] it goes a long way to help the bonding.

Read more about us

Licketyspit is a pioneering Scottish early years theatre and play company which has rooted its work in transformational drama-led children’s rights-based practice for twenty years. Our work springs from the connection between actors and children as ‘play experts’. Learning to consult children through play has led to a series of highly successful projects on a trajectory of discovery, which has coalesced as – Storyplay – a powerful and flexible children’s rights-based approach & methodology based on shared intergenerational imaginary play.

Porridge & Play Ruchill is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund as part of Big Porridge & Play Glasgow. It first started in 2017. Since 2020 we have also been offering sessions online – find out more here.
