2016 Adventure Play Awards
The London Adventure Play Awards recognise and celebrate great adventure play wherever it happens.
Our annual awards celebrate adventurous play in schools, on the streets and in summer holiday play schemes. But as always, recognising and celebrating the special role of adventure playgrounds in children’s lives is the driving force behind this event, now in its 16th year.
Thank you to our award sponsors: APES, The Worshipful Company of Fanmakers, Julia Barfield MBE and Timberplay.
