2021 Belfast Children’s Festival

March 5 @ 8:00 am - March 14 @ 7:00 pm

The programme for the 2021 Belfast Children’s Festival, which will take place online for the first time from 5-14 March, is out now!

The Festival will premiere a new horror opera for children from the Belfast Ensemble; feature a magical audio theatre experience for the whole family, all the way from Australia with Mountain Goat Mountain; host a ​dance double-bill inspired by the insects that inhabit a world beneath our feet from Second Hand Dance.

New to the Festival is Catherine Wheels and Barrowland Ballet from Scotland and the host the return of Maiden Voyage Dance to this year’s festival to premiere their new performance, ‘Turnabout’.   And who would have thought when they started to put the programme together almost 18 months ago, the resonance that our opening festival performance from Replay Theatre Company, a piece set in the aftermath of a global pandemic, would have

All that plus Cahoot’s NI’s brain-bamboozling interactive ‘The University of Wonder and Imagination’, Festival favourites like the Book Clinic from Children’s Books Ireland and Baby Rave @ Home from Young at Art have been specially adapted for online audiences and Cherrie OnTop will read a selection of diversity and inclusion themed  ‘Dragtime Bedtime Stories’ stories especially for under 5s.

Excited?  So are we!!!  Check out the highlights video here!
