Forget about real life and start acting like a child. Remember your favourite childhood games like blind man’s buff? ‘Back To Play’ offers that same innocent joy and fun, even for jaded grownups! ‘Back To Play’ is curated by Community Art Network (CAN) who is determined to transport you back to your childhood. So forget all that high-tech gaming, bring grandma and the kids and enjoy three-generation Chinese jump rope, play hide-and-seek on our lawn, or try making your own toys and share the joy with others.

Ok, parents own up! Who wants to see their kids all tied up having the time of their lives while you just kick back and relax? Then ‘Tangle’ is your answer – where your kids are given a ball of colourful elastic bands to start weaving a giant interactive maze. While we don’t offer conventional nursery services, we guarantee full attention from your kids as they become mini installation artists and are encouraged to have fun – through crawling, dancing or lying on top of the bouncy maze that they make accompanied by some live music!
Who should attend?
Suitable for 4 to 12 years-old and no, adults are not allowed even if you do dress like a tween!
Those with under 3 year-old can take your little ones into ‘Baby Tangle’ and get all tangled up together.

‘Tangle’ is suitable for people of a wide range of different abilities – it is difficult for wheelchair access within the maze, but they could interact at the edge of the maze with helpers.
