Edinburgh International Children's Festival
Selected dates between 29 May - 6 June 2021
For two weekends, we welcome the Edinburgh International Children's Festival Family Encounters programme. The outdoor programme celebrates the creative talents of artists based in Scotland and will bring an array of artistic adventures up close to families. You can expect pop-up dance performances, adventure trails, audio journeys, and sightings of undiscovered creatures, all in a Covid-safe environment.
The programme is free, but you will need to book a (free) time slot through Eventbrite in advance. Time slots will be released on Thu 20 May 12noon for the 1st weekend of the Festival and on Thu 27 May 12noon for the 2nd weekend. We are sorry that due to Covid restrictions, the number of time slots available are limited.
