Pollokshields Playhouse_TinkerTown den building event by The City of Play.


You can help in lots of different ways, whether you are looking to volunteer or donate materials. Get in touch and become part of the movement!


It takes a huge team effort to plan, prepare, facilitate and clear up a #TinkerTown event. That is why we rely on you to help us where possible. There are 3 main ways you can help the team deliver a successful den building event; donate materials, volunteer or even request to host an event. Read below to find out a little more on what each items contains.

Donate Materials

If you are a contractor, a timber merchant or looking to dispose of timber, you can donate materials to the event. We primarily re-use tarpaulin, netting, paint, timber boarding, timber joists or studwork and of course LOTS & LOTS of Timber Pallets!

We can either collect the materials or accept a deliver to the event site at a time that suits the hosts.


We often require a number of volunteers before, during and after the event has finished. If you are not adverse to  little bit of manual labour and love working with children and families then get in touch! So c'mon everyone! Let's generate some community spirit and kick start another fantastic #TinkerTown!
