The Edinburgh International Children’s Festival showcases the world’s best theatre and dance for children and has established itself as one of the best places for programmers to see work of the very highest standard; a platform to discover new talent and performances for young audiences. In 2017, it attracted over 300 industry delegates from 23 different countries. It is the perfect forum for artists to meet, see, discuss work and take part in professional development activities.

Programme information for delegates will be emailed mid-February 2018 with booking opening early March. To make sure you receive all updates, sign up for our eNews here.

If you would like to attend this year's festival and have any queries about the delegate programme, please don't hesitate to contact our producer Pam Walker.

So many wonderful opportunities to see incredible shows and meet such a great network of folk all in it for the same reasons. Thank you for supporting the vital world of children’s & young people theatre but also for making it such a joyous occasion and fantastic festival.
