Play in the Place

Burton Market Hall & Place

Join us in Burton Market Hall & Place for a day of FREE pop-up performances, stories, installations and things to do for the whole family.


The Pentagon is a stunning freestanding installation, swathed in attention-grabbing, hand-drawn designs that are just begging for some colour Come and help bring it to life!

Shed of Stories

Overnight a small mysterious shed appears.  The doors are opened, words and stories tumble out, music and laughter begins to fill the air and then, as if by magic – children start to arrive. Tales will be told at various intervals throughout the day.  Between story times the shed becomes a pop-up library where children and families can read together.
