Wednesday Playgroups

Welcome to Pop Up Play Village!

Our role play village is mobile, open plan, educational and FUN!

Children from babies to 8 years are able to play in a safe environment where they can engage, explore and immerse themselves in the world of role play. They can become doctors, chefs, builders, vets and more – our play areas are designed to inspire imaginations and allow the children to lead their own play.

We are family orientated and know that it’s as important for grown-ups to socialize as much as it is our little people, so our sessions are open plan to allow you to sit back and always be able to see your children.

We currently do sessions at these venues:

Merley Community Centre Wimborne 2nd Monday of the month

Branksome Community Centre 1st Wednesday of the month

The Centre Ferndown 2nd Tuesday of the month

Redhill Park Café Bournemouth different days throughout the month

We also Pop up at Birthdays parties, weddings and much more.

We can’t wait to see you at a session and welcome you to our village very soon.
