When the government decided to cut the budget destined for youth services in England and Wales by 70%, it did not mean the end of enjoyment. Even though there are many signs prohibiting ball games, children in the working-class communities come up with innovative games to play every day.

Before COVID-19 they wandered through their neighborhoods inventing all kinds of activities and even turning them into competitions. They also found time to talk about the important issues: having children, relationships, finances, and school.

Some of their games are easy to understand but some are dangerous or downright pointless. Still, they play, because they need to.

This short film is a celebration of the ingenuity of young children; how they willingly take whatever they’re given and make the best of it. Watch this now.
