PlayLAND is the new exhibition by Derby-based PlayLAB artist John Whall. A fun interactive installation, PlayLAND brings the world of outdoor play inside Level Centre building, inviting you to play, sense and immerse yourself in a playful relaxing world.

Made with Level participants, this exhibition continues John’s artistic journey to bring community made artwork to gallery audiences through high quality digital experiences.



Open Monday – Friday from 11 January to 12 April 24.

Tickets are FREE, but please book in advance.

Bookings are for up to eight people (including carers if required) for a 45 minute visit. You only need to make one booking for you and your group. When you book for PlayLAND you’ll have exclusive use of the installation for 45 minutes, but you can book a double slot if you need more time.

Please select your preferred date and time in the booking calendar opposite. You’ll receive an automated email confirming your booking which also gives you the option to rearrange if required.
