Pop-Up Playspace in Worthing empty shop

Worthing's old Allied Carpet showroom will be transformed for half term into a Pop-Up Playspace.

The project was the idea of 8 year old Toby Bishop, who suggested it to Dan Thompson, the founder of the Empty Shops Network. With funding from Worthing Regeneration and the support of Worthing Lions, the group are opening the space from Saturday 13th-Saturday 20th February.

There will be an inflatable bumper car circuit, a snowball coconut shy, a blow-up air hockey table, a craft area and a pop-up igloo play corner.

There will also be a programme of activity including a circus skills session in the afternoon on Tuesday 16th, screen-printing workshop all day on Wednesday 17th, and a special collage craft session on Saturday 20th. The Costume Fairy will have a dressing up box full of historic costume for children from Monday to Wednesday. And more arts activity is being planned as well.

The Pop-Up Playspace is suitable for children aged 5-12. Two sessions will run each day, from 10am-12.30 and from 1.30-4pm. Admission per session is 4.00.

The former Allied Carpet showroom is at 1-15 Buckingham Road, Worthing. Previously, the space was used by the Empty Shops Network and Worthing Lions to create a 'meanwhile' community centre.
