The Festival runs from 20-31 May with the main delegate programme running from 25-30 May.

The Edinburgh International Children’s Festival showcases the world’s best theatre and dance for children with performances that are deeply engaging, innovative and inspiring. It has established itself as one of the best places for programmers and artists to see high quality work, discover new talents and network with peers from all over the world. In 2019, the Festival attracted 320 industry delegates from 25 different countries. The shows, aimed at 0 to 15 year olds, include a mix of theatre and dance and attract an audience of over 13,000 children, families and schools every year.

As well as festival shows, the delegate programme includes delegate-only events such as discussions and work-in-progress, networking opportunities and social events to keep delegates busy all week! The delegate events programme is available to registered delegates only and runs Monday to Saturday (25-30 May).
