MK Playday Lost Children Policy

The MK Playday committee have decided that there will be no announcements from the stage compere regarding lost children at the event.

The system for reuniting families at MK Playday is that each child is given a free wristband so that the accompanying parent or guardian at the event can write their contact number inside the band. This has proved to be a successful and discreet way of reuniting families.

A special tent will be available where you can pick up a free wristband at any point during the event. This will also be the meeting point for reuniting lost families.

We recommend that all families attending MK Playday use the wristbands as shown below. They will be available free of charge from the Lost Children tent shown above and from our volunteers who will be handing them out around the event area.

If you believe you have lost your child and cannot find the lost child tent you can call our dedicated number. (Lost children phone number will be announced here nearer to the event).
