Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will get you everywhere.

Albert Einstein

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

George Bernard Shaw

Nothing lights up a child's brain like playing.

Dr Stuart Brown

Play turns out to be so stunningly essential to childhood. It's like love, sunshine and broccoli all juiced together.

Lenore Skenszy

Nothing lights up a child's brain like playing.

We have now been able to RE-OPEN our play areas for bookable play sessions. Typically we are running one session in the morning and one early afternoon. Further details can be found on our Facebook, Instagram or by calling the cafe directly. You can also make contact with us via email. We are still operating reduced hours and on some days are only running a morning play session. Weekend hours still vary.

We are a COVID secure venue and are adhering to all the regulations strictly. We are operating at a greatly reduced capacity and clean rigorously and ventilate our building between sessions. The team are working incredibly hard to give you the best experience possible during such difficult times. Please bring a face covering with you as you will be required to wear it as you move around the building. You will be asked to sanitise your hands and complete track and track information in line with Government legislation. We are asking all our visitors to comply with social distancing guidelines. The safety of our staff and customers is paramount.

You cannot attend a play session without booking, so please do contact us to check availability.

Our café remains open to the public to drop in for brunch, lunch and coffee. We always reserve a few tables solely for cafe use. We are also still able to do take away.

We greatly value your support and ask that you continue to do so. We very much hope to be able to navigate the LBE through these very difficult times and continuing being here for you all.
