Playground returns in summer 2021 to Site Gallery in Sheffield.

This year’s theme is based on the question, What If?

Children and families are welcome to come along to have fun and become inspired by cutting edge artwork and imaginative play.

Children can imagine, investigate, create art themselves, and become fully immersed in a world where they can be creators, artists and innovators in their own right.

Sign up to our e-bulletin to be the first to hear about our confirmed dates and our plans to ensure Playground is safe and secure for your children.

Established in 2016, Playground is a 10-day exhibition of everything that’s new in play-along digital for children and families.
