The 16th National Playwork Conference IS TAKING PLACE on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th March 2018 in Eastbourne.

We will be running a more compact and intimate Conference than in previous years. We are able to do this due to a generous contribution from a supporter of our work who wishes to remain anonymous.

We may be smaller - we will have only 5 tracks running which means fewer sessions, but don’t worry; the content will be just as stimulating, interesting and diverse as it has always been.

What are the differences that you will see?

  • We have moved to a new hotel – but still on the seafront,
  • Only 100 Full Delegate Places are available BUT when they have gone it will still be possible to book as a Day Delegate
  • There will be no big international names from the world of play
  • Less space for information displays
  • There will be fewer food choices at lunch, but we will still have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options – and we can still cater to any additional specific dietary requirements you may have, just let us know on your booking form.
  • A new online booking system that reduces admin costs and allows you to pay by card if you are willing to pay a voluntary contribution to cover the card fees.


Why do we exist?


The National Playwork Conference is the only major gathering of playwork people from across the UK with additional guests hailing from other parts of the world. We have been described as “the glue that helps to hold us together”!


We come together in the hope of gaining a greater understanding about the work we do; to learn new skills; to understand more theory; to be able to make a difference in our daily practice. But more than all of this we come together to meet old friends, make new friends and to realise that we are not alone, that there are a whole bunch of other people, other playworkers, with whom we have shared ideals and goals.
