Pop Up & Play transformed Victoria Gardens in summer 2018, creating a colourful platform for 2 weeks of free, fun, family-friendly activities.

Building on the success of ‘Park Here & Play 2017’, the unique partnership between Leeds City Council, Leeds Art Gallery and DLA Design developed a brand new concept for 2018, collaborating with Stage One, engaging Playbox and a whole host of artists and organisations.
The space was designed to encourage play for all ages in the city, making the most of the historic public square and surrounding area including temporary green space on Cookridge Street.

Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council said: “This exciting and innovative space will bring hundreds of families together at the heart of the city centre to explore and experience culture and the arts in a fun and engaging atmosphere free of charge.”
