Porridge & Play at North Edinburgh Arts with Licketyspit


Last Saturday I and the Sketcher clan attended Licketyspit’s Porridge and Play session at North Edinburgh Arts.

Here we see the children balancing in the garden as parents sing songs in the sunshine. Porridge & Play is Licketyspit Theatre Company’s free, fun drama-led play/group games session for North Edinburgh children aged 3-8 years and their parents/carers (older brothers and sisters are also welcome).


Sessions are led by Licketyspit in the superb North Edinburgh Arts, with a large landscaped garden and indoor seating area there is plenty of room for the kids to get some porridge and have a play in a relaxed atmosphere.


Its a great chance for parents to have a chat too, while the children play together, or eat porridge! As soon as we arrived name tags were stuck to our chest which helped break the ice whilst (the very good) coffee was being poured. Later both children and parents played games and enjoyed the outdoor space at NEA.


Summer Porridge and Play will run each Saturday up to and including the 1st August at 10am. So pop along and let the kids fill up on porridge and play this Saturday!
