Lauren Bennet

Lauren Bennet started at IPA in 2020. She is a creative person with a love of the great outdoors.

Job Title: Deputy Playworker
Location: Crumbles Castle
Qualifications: I am an all-round artist, but my degree is in fashion, so I love to get the costumes out and making things with anything I can find. I actually do drag in my free time so I can’t wait until we can play dress up on the playground

What do you love about working at IPA?
I love helping children to explore and love nature and being on the adventure playgrounds is such a unique place to do that! Children have such enquiring minds and they are always teaching me new songs and games and I love being able to listen and learn from them too.

What is your favourite childhood play memory?
My favourite childhood memories are all from being at my Forest School Camping trips that I would go on every summer. The chance to be a wild child, away from my parents for two weeks a year enabled me to really come out of my shell as a shy child and make some of the best friends I still have to this day!
