Just one more sleep until this year’s Belfast Children’s Festival begins!

With just hours to go until Belfast Children’s Festival 2020, venues throughout Belfast are gearing up to host the spectacular, thought provoking local and international performances which will explore this year’s themes of home, place and belonging. 

From Friday 6 to Wednesday 11 March, more than 100 events will take place in 13 locations across the city with the MAC serving as the hub for the Festival. Belfast annually welcomes thousands of visitors to the Festival from across Belfast, Northern Ireland and beyond with several families returning year after year.

Belfast Children’s Festival

Eibhlín de Barra, Director Young at Art, explained

“This year’s festival is a mixture of pioneering work from local artists including Replay Theatre’s Untold Truth of Captain Hook, Kindermusik from critically acclaimed Belfast Ensemble and Helen Hall’s interpretive dance piece ‘Inside the Speaker’.  The hilarious Paul Currie will have everyone in stiches with his own brand of edgy, off the wall comedy and grown up fans of Seedhead Arts’ Midweek Magic will have a chance to bring their children to the mini version.

“Our international programme has a Dutch focus for 2020 with performances of Tetris, Hermit and Jabberbabble.  Meanwhile ‘Stick by Me’, from Scotland is a beautiful non-verbal performance for 3-6 year olds on the theme of friendship.”

Belfast Children’s Festival’s ‘Your Place Family Day’ takes place this Sunday, 8th March with fun and creative activities across Cathedral Quarter including a pop up cinema, Art Cart, craft workshops and an immersive augmented reality experience merging dance and technology.

Festival tickets are on sale at www.youngatart.co.uk. The maximum ticket price is £10, and adults pay the same price as children. Many Belfast Children’s Festival events are free.

Belfast Children’s Festival Principal Funder is The Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
