Over 700 people attended Nottingham's National Playday celebration held at the Arboretum Wed 7 August last year.  Themed around "Play Builds Children", adults and children alike enjoyed a range of activities including rocket launching, junior sports, cardboard modelling, den building and pom pom making.  Special mention goes to the team running the ‘Playback’ exhibition of memories of play in Nottingham who entertained old and young alike with games from yesteryear. More events are planned in 2020..
