This February Half term, residents and visitors are invited to come along to Playing in the Streets, a series of events aimed at welcoming people back to our high streets. The events are being funded by the ERDF Welcome Back Fund, with the support of Torbay Council and the TDA.

Three events will be taking place (one in each of the towns of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay) packed with free fun and entertainment for all of the family. Doorstep Arts’ very own Artists Sonia & Amy will be there each day, performing a storytime on every hour and running a wide range of exciting creative activities for families and young people. Participants will be able to pick up a trail sheet from the welcome tent and complete a street treasure hunt, whilst taking part in some fun games and activities along the way. People can turn up anytime between 11am and 3pm to take part and they can expect live music, workshops, street entertainers and lots of unexpected fun and surprises. The events will encourage people to experience their highstreets in a completely different way and to
learn something new about each of the towns. 
People’s quiz sheets will also include special offers in several of the shops along the route, to inspire people to support their local highstreets. A variety of local organisations will be involved in each of the three events, offering everything from live music to mini-guided walks and art activities to street challenges and games. There will be the opportunity to take part in a circus skills workshop, or perhaps take part in a drumming workshop. Other activities include art workshops, drama activities and have-a-go DJing sessions. Elfic will also be on hand with his comedy juggling show, featuring high unicycling, ladder balancing, magic and more. (All activities are subject to change).
