About the Festival

The Play and Creativity Festival is an opportunity to showcase the ways play and creativity permeate our teaching, research and professional activities. Whether physical, game-based, imaginative, communal, noisy, quiet or solitary, play makes an important contribution to University life. This festival is a jam packed programme of playful events involving everything from lego, balloons and maggot racing to gamified learning and playful food. Feel free to go to all, or any, of the open sessions throughout the week (there is no need to sign up)  for teaching inspiration and to have some fun in the final week of the semester.

An exciting addition to this year’s Play and Creativity Festival is our play tent, located on the Dytche there will be activities running throughout the day. If you would like to contribute a session, please email: Cassie.Shaw@winchester.ac.uk
