The Met is delighted to bring a summer of play and interaction for families to Radcliffe town centre, starting this weekend. Every Saturday from 22 June to 27 July the piazza in Radcliffe will be alive with free games, theatre and chances to play in our pop up culture shop from 11am to 3pm.

Perfect for kids from ages 3-13 (but fun for all ages), each week will see a different activity come to Radcliffe. One week you’ll be playing Rock, Paper, Scissors in a Roman Colosseum, and another you’ll become Pacman in the Actual Reality Arcade. There will be circus skills and new musical instruments to master, and a Pop Up Adventure Playground in the pop-up culture shop where you can help construct your own playground.

All of this takes place just next door to the recently re-launched Radcliffe Market. The market has been pulling in visitors from across Greater Manchester with fresh produce and some brilliant food traders; it’s the perfect chance to drop in for a coffee and see the market for yourself.

Working in partnership with Bury Council, The Met is excited to be part of bringing family friendly fun back to Radcliffe.
