Playhenge! Build a Dream Adventure Playground at Stonehenge this Half Term!


 Bring your Family and Your Wildest Imagination to Build a Dream Adventure Playground at Stonehenge

 Fri 17 May - Tues 4 June 2024

 Stonehenge, a site steeped in ancient mystery and wonder, will play host to an extraordinary building event over May half term, as English Heritage invites children and adults to grab hammers, saws, nails and wood and construct Playhenge – the temporary adventure playground of their dreams!

​English Heritage are working with Woodland Tribe - the UK masters of constructive play - helping children and families work together and create, just as the builders of Stonehenge did 5000 years ago, an ever-evolving, extraordinary and imaginative structure and space.

Inspired by the spirit of collaboration and innovation that may have guided the original builders of Stonehenge, Playhenge offers a hands-on experience that bridges the gap between ancient and modern-day construction and play. Children of all ages will have the opportunity to design and build their own Playhenge, fostering imagination and teamwork in a playful and engaging environment.

Julia Richardson, Operations Manager at Stonehenge said: "Playhenge is a one-of-a-kind experience that allows our visitors to connect with the spirit of creativity and collaboration that has inspired people for millennia. By providing tools and materials for DIY play this half term, we aim to offer a contemporary twist on the timeless wonder of Stonehenge, inviting families to build, play, and create totally unique memories together."

Let your imaginations run wild as together we construct an amazing temporary adventure playground at the Stonehenge visitor centre this May half term. In this exciting event, real tools will be safely used by children and their adults to build the play structure of their dreams using natural materials.

Playhenge is suitable for ages 4+. Children must be accompanied by an adult (minimum of one accompanying adult per three children). The event requires pre-booking. Book online and save 15%.

Playhenge is an immersive, fun activity lasting approximately 50 minutes. Please arrive 15 minutes ahead of your chosen timeslot. Due to the nature of the activity, this event may be noisy. Ear defenders will be available to borrow.  Inclusion Sessions: on Tuesday 21st  and Wednesday 22nd May at 10am, 2pm and 3pm, numbers in  Playhenge will be limited for families who require a quieter experience.

Please note: there will be no sessions on Thursday 23 and Thursday 30 May.
