Join us for GOSH Play Street


Patients, families and children from the local area are invited to take part in Great Ormond Street Hospital’s annual Play Street event.


The event, which this year marks World Car-Free Day, runs between 1pm and 5pm on Friday 22nd September and will have over 15 different activities and areas, including a brightly coloured space hopper racetrack, live music, service animals including a police puppy and a falcon as well as GOSH’s own therapy dogs.  

Play Street forms a key part of GOSH’s ongoing work to support the health of patients and their families, staff and the local community by improving air quality in and around the hospital.

Events such as the Play Street help us envision a different future, one where the road could be a healthier, green space for families and the local community to enjoy.

Play Street is just one way GOSH is working towards a more sustainable future. In 2019 we launched the first ever Clean Air Hospital Framework with Global Action Plan – a strategy aimed at improving the air quality in and around hospitals. We were also the first London Hospital to declare a Climate and Health Emergency and strive to lower carbon emissions across the organisation.
