Britain’s Abandoned Playgrounds

Come and watch a freerunner, highliner, BMX rider and skateboarder on stage as they share their urban playgrounds doing what they do best; backflipping, bar-spinning and vaulting!

A unique opportunity to go behind-the-scenes with Salt Street Productions and the athletes of All 4’s latest commission Britain’s Abandoned Playgrounds.

In July this year, Salt Street converted a double decker bus and took to the road with four urban athletes to hunt out six incredible forgotten locations. From a massive disused shipyard on the banks of the Wear in Sunderland, to the once bustling social hub of the Tarlair swimming pool in Aberdeenshire.

Freerunner Katie McDonnell, highliner Jediah Doohan, BMX rider Pete Catherall and skateboarder Calvin Ligono explore these places doing what they do best; backflipping, bar-spinning and vaulting.

This one-hour event includes a screening of one episode and is followed by a Q&A with the Abandoned Playgrounds team, chaired by Kendal Mountain Festival ambassador and C4 news correspondent Keme Nzerem.

Not to be missed!
