Time: 10.00 – 11.30 

Delivered by: Lucy Turner, Early Years Producer, The Whitworth & Annabel Newfield, Creative Practitioner

Child dancing to online event

About the event

PLAY Live sessions have been developed in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as a way to take the Whitworth’s Early Years programme online and into people’s homes.

Using Zoom we invited children under 5 and their grown ups to come together to play, be curious and be creative with simple, everyday things that surround them in their homes.

Join the PLAY Live team (Lucy Turner, Early Years Producer & Annabel Newfield, Creative Practitioner) to experience a virtual play session first hand, hear what they have learnt from their experience so far and have your chance to ask questions.
