Games in the Park (imove)

A series of indoor and outdoor events and exhibitions celebrating games and how they’ve developed as people have moved around the world.

Mass participation and online master-classes will revive the games that our grandparents used to play and teach us brand new interactive games that everyone can join in.

With storytellers weaving histories to the songs that games are played to, Games in the Park invites everyone out to play in the run up to the Olympic Games.

New Worlds is a partnership between imove, Alchemy Anew, Bradford Council Museums & Galleries, the National Centre for Early Music, the National Media Museum and Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
