After building their own musical instrument, children can proudly display their own unique instrument at the Tunnel of Sound located outside. 

‘Hideaways – Creating With Nature’ invites and encourages children to play and learn to appreciate the natural world. It also enables children to learn and observe animals and plants in their natural environment. Summing up by Playeum’s Executive Director, Anna Salaman “The very nature of this process is to enable children to take ownership of the experience, and therefore the team at Playeum is constantly observing children and adapting the programme in response to the children’s experiences. We also involve and consult with, regularly, our Children’s Advisory Network, consisting of up to 15 children aged between 3 and 12. This ensures that the programmes are child-centred and also ensures their sustainability.”

Children and parents to Playeum can look forward to an impressive line-up of creative workshops, holiday camps, artist interventions and other activities that will form the ‘Hideaways’ programme. Please click HERE for more information.
