A day jam-packed with play and fun activities for children of all ages will return to Wrexham this summer.

On Wednesday 7 August Llwyn Isaf (the Library field) and Queens Square will be transformed into a giant play area as part of the National Playday celebrations.

The annual event is for people of all ages including babies and toddlers, older children, teenagers, parents, professionals and grandparents – all of which are invited to join in this free and playful event.

Throughout the day there will be the chance to take part in fun activities such as the popular sandpit on Queens Square, a slip-and-slide, junk play, crafts and much, much more!

Local organisations involved in children’s play and playwork from across Wrexham will come together to help make the event as fun and exciting as possible.

The aim of the National Playday is to highlight children’s right to play, encouraging people to recognise the value of playing to children, their families and their local communities.

In doing this Wrexham’s Playday event is part of the local authority’s continued commitment to try ensure all children across the county borough have enough time, space and permission to play.

A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “All we ask is that you bring along a playful mood and some clothes you don’t mind getting wet and messy. In the past families have brought along picnics and stayed all afternoon!

“Playday is the number one date for everyone’s diary as we all come together in the city centre for an afternoon that’s totally dedicated to children and young people having fun.

“Once again we expect thousands during the afternoon and our Playday team are working hard behind the scenes to make it an afternoon to remember.”
