We are deeply saddened to announce that this year's Edinburgh International Children's Festival is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Government advice to close schools and venues means it is no longer possible for us to go ahead as planned.


Our flagship festival is now called Edinburgh International Children’s Festival (formerly Imaginate Festival).

The Edinburgh International Children's Festival is Scotland's international festival of performing arts for children and young people.

Edinburgh - We are based in Edinburgh and contribute to the rich tapestry of arts and culture available throughtout the year. Our nine-day long celebration of theatre and dance for children offers over 90 performances in various venues across Edinburgh.

International - Our programme is truly international. Our Festival Director travels far and wide to select the most exciting and innovative performances available worlwide. This year, we will be presenting productions from 9 different countries including Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Wales, the Netherlands, Norway and Australia. The Festival has also established itself as one of the best places for programmers from all over the world to see young people’s work of the very highest standard and each year, we welcome over 200 delegates from leading venues such as Sydney Opera House, Southbank Centre or the New Victory in Broadway.

Children - Our programme offers a rich and diverse mix of productions specifically created for children and young people. We want more children in Scotland to experience work that is deeply engaging, innovative and inspiring. We believe that all children deserve the opportunity to develop their creativity, emotional intelligence and reach their true potential.
