Celebrate London’s great re-opening with Formula Fun – bringing the excitement of London Play’s famous go kart build and race events to central London this summer!
Yes! London is re-opening and we are inviting you to witness the biggest and best build, race and decorate go kart event that the capital has ever seen, as part of the Mayor’s Let’s Do London campaign. Between Saturday 21 August and Sunday 05 September we will be running pop-up events in 19 locations across the central city – with kids building their own karts and competing not just on speed but also going all out on extravagant decorations! Teams of super-keen children have already signed up and are now busily dreaming and preparing to make the most awesomely decorated karts the city has ever seen.
The opening event will be in Regents Park on Saturday 21 August with two karts themed around Shakespearean woodland fairies; and you will not want to miss the final event in Spitalfields on Sunday 05 September. This will see four teams creating food-themed karts and competing for the title of ‘fastest dish’ in the ‘À la Karte’ grand finale
See below for the full event schedule (NB subject to change, please check back before travelling)
London Play is visiting streets, estates, adventure playgrounds and parks with all the materials, tools and decorations needed for a team of super keen kids to build and decorate their very own go kart. Plus, our dedicated two-person kart crew to guide and support.
Once complete, the team will take turns putting their kart through its paces. Each kart will complete a lap of honour in the surrounding neighbourhood, past shops and eateries for everyone to come out, enjoy the spectacle and celebrate our return to the streets.
These events are funded by the Mayor of London as part of the £6m Let’s Do London campaign to encourage Londoners and visitors back into central London. All brakes off for a #SummerofPlay!
NOTE: All spaces for these events have now been allocated. If you would like to go on the waiting list, or to register as a supporter of London Play and get advance notice of other events and opportunities, click below to drop us a line.
