Day of play will be fun for all the family in Edgeley this weekend

During the fun-filled weekend, which forms part of our Town of Culture activities, as well as installation of play equipment on Castle Street and ‘A child's eye view' trail co-designed with local children, there will be two days of playful street activities taking place in Edgeley, all inspired by ideas from local children and open to all.

On Saturday 9 of March, the team are bringing a day of play onto Castle Street, including an on street disco from 11am to 12pm, a googly eye bombing walking tour and a range of street games, including giant hopscotch, ring toss and ‘portal’ hide and seek, and providing some massive chalk for you to get colourful and creative.

Sunday 10 March will be a day for community action with a child friendly 'open mic' style speakers corner. Mini eco-warriors can also listen to a series of passionate 'lighting talks', from 12-2pm, from local organisations involved in active travel, climate action, creative activation of local places and spaces, along with two seed bomb making workshops at 11am and 1pm to make a gift to plant at home for Mother Earth on Mother's Day!

The event will also be a chance to share your views on the pilots and suggest additional ideas for the future. Come and visit Castle Street from 11am to 2pm on Saturday and Sunday.

All events are free to attend and all are welcome.

And don’t forget, they’ll be more activities for everyone to enjoy at the Stockport Town of Culture Weekender on 23 and 24 March, when the town centre will play host to a two-day, fun-packed weekend of free cultural festivities and free access to must-visit venues.

Councillor Frankie Singleton, Cabinet Member for Communities, Culture & Sport at Stockport Council, said: “This two-day event in Edgeley promises to be amazing fun for all the family, especially as it coincides with Mother’s Day. It’s also a great chance for the children of the area to have a say on helping shape the place they live in and make it an even better place to grow up in. It will also be an opportunity for everyone to see the new Stockport County mural at the end of Castle Street. It looks absolutely brilliant, so a huge thank you to everyone involved.”
