The PlaygroundEncouraging adults to embrace their inner child, super seed brand 9Nine presents The Playground. Drawing attention to the importance of play time, no matter what your age, the two-day event will see London Fields taken over by giant slides, super see-saws and jumbo swings along with other playground favourites. The adult-only experience will also feature DJs, refreshments and 9Nine snacks. The healthy eating brand believes that nutritional food is just one aspect of a happy, well-rounded day and they're going to showcase how social interaction, imagination, fun and laughter can help with mental and physical health.

 

About London Fields

Located in a bustling, regenerated area of east London, London Fields park has been transformed from a neglected area of common ground into a thriving rich recreation ground. It now contains a wonderful heated lido (one of the few heated outdoor pools in London), cricket pitch, a small BMX track, two tennis courts and a children's play area. More about London Fields
