Playtime at the Whitworth

17 August 2023 @ 10:30 - 16:00


Families of Manchester are invited to Playtime at The Whitworth, with free events running from 2 – 31 August, exploring the art of play.

1st to 31st August 2023 – See more dates here

This summer PLAYTIME is going to market. Have a wander and find things to do both indoors and out. With our PLAY Market’ area, sketching stations, Whitworth Minecraft and a sensory play area for babies, there’s something for all the family.

Drop in on Tuesdays (from 10:30am-1:00pm), Wednesdays (from 1:00pm-4:00pm) and Thursdays (from 1:00pm-4:00pm) throughout August. From Minecraft to sensory play, there will be a range of different creative activities to do, inside and outdoors.

This summer we invite you to explore ways of ‘doing things differently’ inspired by the exhibition Economics the Blockbuster: It’s Not Business as Usual.

Make and trade with friends in our market role-play area. What will you make? Mud pies in exchange for pebbles or magic potions for conkers?
