At Play 2 took place at South Hill Park, Bracknell from 17 April to 20 June 2010, and continued At Play 1's exploration of play: making magic and being transformed, passing the time, messing about and making a mess, being yourself and pretending to be someone else, having secrets, making dens, belonging to gangs, creating rules and rituals, taking dares and chances, making and exploring small worlds.

The artists in At Play 2 were Mary Anderson, Emily Bailey, Jackie Berridge, Tineke Bruijnzeels, Stephen Conning, Sergio Cruz, Alex Dewart, Caitriona Dunnett, Helen Edling, Helen Flanaghan, Linda Francis, Freya Gabie, Francesca Galeazzi, Amy Galloway, Judy Goldhill, Paul Greco, Lesley Halliwell, David Hockney, Clare Johnson, Daniel Lehan, Katy Merrington, Arnaud Moinet, Elizabeth Murton, Nicola Pomery, Joanna Salter, Kay Sentance, Cally Trench, Nick Trench, Imogen Welch, and Mary Yacoob, with work at the opening reception by Sean Caves, Felicity Clarke, James R Ford, and Clara García Fraile, and a performance residency by Katherina Radeva and Alister Lownie.
