At an adventure playground near you
Tuesday 27Thursday 29 July 2021

We are making sure that London kids don’t miss out on the chance to build and race go karts this summer by sticking to our covid-friendly ‘Together A-Kart’ format, tried and tested to great success in 2020 as the film above attests!

The London Play team will be visiting three adventure playgrounds over three days, with two teams at each site given a pile of wood, wheels and some metal bits along with a few tools – and four hours to build a go kart from scratch. Then, they will race!

There are thrills, spills and a ridiculous amount of fun – so get in touch to let us know if your adventure playground is up for it.

We are very grateful for the generous sponsorship of the Henry Surtees Foundation in making this event possible. See you out there!

London Play events
The London Adventure Play Awards recognise and celebrate great adventure play wherever it happens. 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 21st year.
In 2021, Camp Build will return to the forest, for an epic camp-to-end-all-camps! Having successfully taken Camp Build 'on Tour' in 2020 to adapt to the challenges wrought by the pandemic, this summer London Play will again run ‘build in the wild’ camps for 11-15-year olds who like building stuff, or want to learn how
