It’s that wonderful time of the year when the nights are getting lighter, the days are a little bit sunnier and festival season is just around the corner !
To warm us up before full festival season gets going, the Imaginate Festival is bringing some fantastic children’s theatre to Edinburgh.
One of the highlights looks to be the family fringe opening weekend, which is taking place at the National Museum of Scotland over the weekend of the 28th/29th May. There will be a host of free drop-in activities including storytellers, mini performances, hands on art activities and live music for everyone to enjoy.
I was particularly excited to see that The Bookbinder is coming to the Imaginate festival as I tried really hard to get tickets during the fringe and never managed and it had great reviews so is well worth checking out. ”A story of mystery, intrigue and charm.” Traverse Theatre 2nd-5th June.
For the littler ones, the Blue Block Studio looks good to explore – offering an innovative, creative space for babies to listen, to explore, to build, to watch, to lie down, to look and to touch.

All the other performances look well worth checking out in this gem of a festival and a wonderful way to introduce kids to theatre……
