It’s been a while since I have written about my community pop-ups. The 19 Pop-Ups that we managed to host in 2018 were a real hit, so there has been a lot of anticipation for what 2019 will bring!
So as not to inundate non-Manchester folk with local play opportunities, I have set up a Facebook group called Just Play MCR by Pop-Up Adventure Play where dates of the local pop-ups, and their associated links and reminders are all posted up. There are over 40 people in this group now and if you’re local to Manchester, you are welcome to join!
There are a number of events coming up in the first week of May that we thought we’d list and clarify. It’s been a bit confusing even for us because all the dates are so close together, so here it is, laid out simply:
- 3rd May 2019, 5 pm – 7:30 pm @ Radcliffe Market as part of Friday Food Night. Come and play until the street lights come on, and then play some more! Please take note that the play location is outside unless it’s raining.
- 4th May 2019, 11 am – 4 pm @ Amazing Accrington Live Music Festival. Okay, so it’s not quite Manchester, but we are the official charity for this event and hope to draw a lot of attention to the cause. Location within the festival to be confirmed so bring outdoor clothes anyway.
- 6th May 2019, 2 pm – 4 pm @ The Monastery as part of Happy Sundaze. This is a paid event, but we’re excited anyway as we’re the official charity. Come along and join us as we play in the courtyard of this beautiful setting. Check out the interview I did with them here.
- 7th May 2019, 6 pm – 8 pm @ Radcliffe Boys and Girls Club. If you’re local to Radcliffe and have been meaning to come to the Radcliffe Boys and Girls Club with your kids, pop on down and see us – Pop-Ups Zan is exploring a new relationship with these folks in hopes for more exciting plans to come! The Boys and Girls Club is for children between the ages of 8-12 and will be indoors.
