We’re very excited and privileged to be working with Marc Armitage on his first US tour. It is a great partnership for the following reasons:

1) Marc Armitage is a great playworker

He’s been in the field for over 30 years both as a front line worker and as a speaker in all sorts of guises and in all sorts of countries. He speaks the message of playwork from a person with experience and expertise, and even though Pop-Up Adventure Play won’t be going on tour with him, we know that he really really knows his stuff.

2) Pop-Up Adventure Play and Marc Armitage share a passion to give children the opportunity to play

Not only that, we everyone to relax and enjoy the experience, and allowing children to really take the lead on their activities. Thus the title of the tour: Keep Calm and Play On.

3) This last one’s important too: we like to share.

We want everyone to have access to play, and we want to give people the tools to do it. By sending Marc on tour, we’re able to get the importance of play out there so that anyone and everyone can play.

With only three weeks to go, we’re really very excited about this tour. Grab your tickets to see Marc at a location near you so that you too can find out the importance of play – they’re flying out the virtual office quicker than you can say Keep Calm and Play On!
