Leicester 360 Play annual closed maintenance day

We will be closed in Leicester on Tuesday 16th June for our annual maintenance day.

The centre will reopen on Wednesday 17th June.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

360 Play announces Community Week winners.

A few weeks ago we offered 2,100 tickets to local community groups and charities

and we had an overwhelming response.

 

These are the lucky winners:

Whilst we couldn’t offer every single group entrance to our centre, we did give everyone a free family pass to use to raise money for their organisation.

We are so excited to open our doors to the invited community groups and charities to provide them, and those they support, with a memorable day out and hopefully a little respite from the difficult times some of those visiting may be going through.

We offer year round support to our local community. Here are some of the things we can do:

 

Donate a family pass to be used to raise money in a raffle.

Attend an event with our resident mascots Twizzle and Twirl.

Volunteer week, 1st-7th June. Volunteers get free entry during volunteer week on production of proof of volunteering.

 

If you would like us to support your event just send us an email. communitytickets@360play.co.uk

No screen time at 360 Play!

We are always looking to encourage families with young children to be more active. Switch off the screen and let’s get playing, we say!

At a time when so many youngsters spend many an hour in front of a computer or TV screen, the industry leading team at 360 Play is seeking to promote healthier and more beneficial play which in turn enhances child development. To this end, there is no ‘screen time’ at its venues; instead all the activities on offer provide a fun, stimulating environment which encourages children aged 2 to 12 to be creative and use their imagination, whether it be enjoying the many indoor or outdoor elements available.

Research shows that today’s children spend a great deal more time indoors than outdoors – and that’s not good! Outdoor play increases fitness levels and builds active, healthy bodies, it provides a naturally stress-free environment for young minds to benefit from and it aids youngsters’ development both mentally and physically.

As we move from spring to summer and the weather becomes more conducive to outdoor play, 360 Play Milton Keynes offers a wide range of activities within its Club 360 outdoor area, providing children with another fun, safe environment to enjoy. With paddle boats, a huge sandpit, play houses and much more, youngsters can be out in the sunshine and fresh air for a healthier, physically active time.

To help promote a healthier, more active lifestyle for young children, particularly during the warmer summer months, 360 Play is encouraging its members and visitors to post pictures on its Facebook page of themselves having a great time in the great outdoors. The best ones will win a family day pass to 360 Play (for two adults and two children; be sure to tag 360 Play in the photos; Ts & Cs apply).

Everything at 360 Play is available for an all-inclusive price and there are no time limits. There’s also free parking right outside the front door so it really is the place to be this half-term – whatever the weather!

Exclusive special needs evenings, big success.

We provide a unique offering for families with children with special needs

The events take place on the first Friday of each month from 6.30pm to 8.30pm and provide an opportunity for children, parents and carers to come together for an exclusive period of play and activities in a safe, secure environment with friendly and experienced staff. A reduced charge of £4.99 for each child is made and parents and carers receive free entry.

Research shows that children who participate in regular physical activities develop the knowledge, skills, behaviours, attitudes and confidence needed to be active for life, while play also provides a welcome outlet for children to be creative and release stored up energy. These skills are especially important for children with special needs.

“Very often special needs children are unable to use our centres when other children are present so our exclusive evenings each month provide an environment that caters specifically to their needs and enjoyment.”

Brothers, sisters and friends are welcome too and all the usual facilities are on offer, including a three storey soft play structure, dodgem cars, carousel, 360 Street with all its creative play opportunities and a café area. Mascots Twizzle and Twirl also join in with games and party dancing.

A Father’s Day special offer for dads at 360 Play!

There’s a great opportunity for some fun and games with dad on Father’s Day at 360 Play – with some special offers available for ‘dads’ too!

The first 50 ‘dads’ through the door on Sunday, June 21st will receive a FREE national newspaper, while all ‘dads’ will also receive a FREE hot drink during their visit (‘dads’ can be any adult male accompanying children).

360 Play centres are all designed so that adults can join in the fun too so why not bring dad along for some quality fun time on his special day – he’ll secretly probably love all the activities just as much as the youngsters!

And if you are looking to give ‘dad’ an extra special start to the day, why not come along for a hearty breakfast before diving into all the great activities on offer. These include lots of climbing, sliding and crawling opportunities in the three storey play structure, as well as all sorts of other fun things to do such as the dodgems, carousel, 360 Street creative play area and the Club 360 outdoor area (weather permitting of course!)

We are all geared up to give ‘dads’ a fun-filled day to remember with their children – whatever the weather – so we look forward to welcoming you on June 21st.
