Do you like the idea of your children being able to play freely outside their own front door? Playing Out began with discussions amongst like-minded parents in South Bristol, UK. As their children grew, the parents started to feel frustrated that their freedom to play outside was so limited, being close to the city centre with few green spaces. Two mums came up with the idea that they could take the street party model and apply to close their street to traffic one day after school, giving the road over to the children to play in. The success of this initial event generated much discussion and media coverage both nationally and internationally and Playing Out was born. This website hosts an active blog and instructionals on how to organise your own Playing Out session.
