Welcome to the 28th edition of Edinburgh’s International Children’s Festival!

The 2017 Festival programme gives you and your pupils the opportunity to see some of the world’s best theatre, dance, multi-media and puppetry performances specially made for children and young people. The fifteen productions offer a rich and diverse mix of themes and genres that will provide fertile material for reflection, discussion and encourage pupils with their own arts explorations back in the classroom.

Q&A Session for Schools

Festival First! Each production features one post-show Q&A session with artists from the visiting companies. This is just one way of increasing the learning opportunities for students, providing them with a first-hand insight into artists’ creative process.

If you require any assistance with your booking, please do not hesitate to call Nicola Hopper on 0131 225 8050 or email: with any queries.
