Since the International Children’s Festival began in 1990, it has grown to attract over 10,000 individuals, schools and families. The festival features the world's very best theatre and dance for young audiences and is sure to excite and inspire young minds.

As usual the Festival will showcase great theatre and dance created especially for children and young people. However, with Covid restrictions likely to be still in place, the Festival’s 2021 programme will focus primarily on Scottish and UK artists, with a combination of outdoor and digital performances.

Restrictions allowing, families will be able to enjoy a series of pop-up performances throughout the city over the first and final weekend of the Festival and there will be digital events on offer for those who would rather stay at home. Extra Covid measures will be put in place to ensure everyone’s safety at all time.
