Recording Nottingham's Play History

Here at PlayWorks we know Play is vital for a child's development. Children have always played, since the dawn of time, it's how we learn! Has the way we Play changed over time? PlayWorks will be answering that question by capturing the stories and memories of Play in Nottingham from a wide selction of the local community with our exciting project, PlayBack. 

Working alongside heritage partners Sudbury Hall Museum of Childhood and local schools, PlayBack enables local children and young people to discover how elder generations played and learn some traditional games from bygone eras. To preserve these stories for future generations a group of local young people will be recording and presenting the 'Oral Histories’. For all the latest PlayBack news and information join the PlayBack facebook group.

Get involved!
