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. It regularly attracts over 200 industry delegates and is the perfect forum for artists to meet, see and discuss work and take part in professional development activities.
