Pokémon players in Burgess Hill, East Grinstead, and Haywards Heath are being invited to join in free ‘play days’ run by Mid Sussex District Council.

The district council is hosting three afternoons of family activities, all themed around the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and Brazilian carnival fun.

To celebrate these events, the council will be placing Lures on Pokestops in each park for the duration of each event to attract even more Pokémon, and Pokémon trainers, to the party.

The free Play Day events will be held at:

• Victoria Park in Haywards Heath from 11am until 3pm on Weds August 3

• St John’s Park in Burgess Hill from 11am until 3pm on Thurs August 4

• King George’s Field in East Grinstead from 11am until 3pm on Weds August 10

The Pokémon Lures will be placed every 30 minutes on Pokestops within the park, attracting more Pokémon to the area while the play days are taking place.

Then, once trainers have bagged a Bulbasaur or pocketed a Pikachu, they can head over to see what’s going on at the Mid Sussex play days.

The free Play Days are designed to appeal to both boys and girls and are aimed at children aged under 13. There will be something for everyone to enjoy with sports competitions, a climbing wall, interactive theatre, Brazilian dancing, Samba and drumming workshops, a fancy dress competition and the chance to make a headdress and Olympic Torch.
