Term-time: Tuesday & Friday 3 pm – 6 pm; Saturday 12 pm – 4 pm


We endeavour to open during the school holidays, however days and times are confirmed nearer the date as holiday opening hours are dependant on funding.  Please check our website and Facebook page for details.  There is no charge to come to the playground and low cost tuck shop snacks and refreshments are available.

2018 was the second year of running Tea at Adventures over the summer holidays.  The project is part of a city wide scheme, funded by Sheffield City Council.  Activities and food costs for families can rise significantly in the summer when children are out of school, the project aims to  ease that burden by bringing children and families together to eat and play over the 6 weeks holidays. Staff and volunteers worked together to prepare daily nutritious meals 5 days a week for children and families attending the Playground.  All meals included at least three vegetables and everything was prepared from scratch in the kitchen.  Over the holidays 938 people registered and ate at Tea at Adventures, with a 3166 meals served!  A large number of local families attended and ate with us regularly and made eating at Tea at Adventures apart of their summer holiday routine.
