When: Saturday, July 13 (11.30am to 6pm) and Sunday, July 14 (10am to 6pm)

Stroud's new festival of play is aimed at children but inclusive of adults; with activities, workshops and entertainment spread across two days in two locations.

Head to Bank Gardens in the centre of Stroud on Saturday, July 13, for Silly Science workshops, APE project's water play, Access Bikes' pedal-powered smoothie maker, plus live music from amazing performers.

Mini Morris, Paper Jungle and Sound Scape will also be putting on performances and interactive shows at St Laurence Church.

On the Sunday head to the Goods Shed for a day of interactive fun, behind the Stroud Train Station.

There will be the Arty Brum Booty art car boot sale outside the Goods Shed. There will also be Den City; a community-made city made of a mass of cardboard dens.

In addition, there will be two Disco Nature shows, interactive live shows combining natural science, comedy, music, dance and games, developed in collaboration between musician Josef Reeve aka JoeisElvis and Kaoru Blackstone from Wild Things.

Find the full programme on the Playground Fest website and keep an eye on the Facebook event page for updates and additions.
