Sun, sea, sand…North Berwick has it all and it even has a fantastic fringe festival too : Fringe By The Sea which is returning this year from the 3rd- 12th August.
Fringe by the sea has a jam packed kids programme which is also ever expanding, and this year is totally brilliant – ranging from kid’s discos, seaside science, soap carving, colouring in and right up to meditation !
Here are some top picks :
Phil Kay : Gimme Your Left Shoe – Looking both intriguing and fun, I’m sure Phil Kay will bring some of his comedy magic to this show to entertain all the littlies – Join Phil Kay in his show of shoe-shows as every kid gives up their left shoe and then does a skit with daft props to get it back. Saturday 4th August 12.00
Monski Mouse’s Baby Disco Dance Hall – Monski Mouse is a firm festival favourite and is a totally fun, upbeat and energetic way to have fun with the kids – everyone will be dancing and singing away ! Why toddle when you can dance? Selling out shows around the world, come find out why DJ Monski Mouse is a hit with the under fives and their parents/carers. Expect to do some high-energy smiling to retro hits, pop favourites and funky nursery rhymes. Sunday 5th August 3pm
Eilidh Muldoon: Colouring In North Berwick – For the past couple of year my daughter and I have really enjoyed the ‘tea and colouring in ‘ events with Eilidh at the book festival, and this looks equally as special. Eilidh Muldoon has created a prototype North Berwick Colouring Book especially for Fringe by the Sea. In this session you will be colouring in her her drawings, making some of your own and bringing them to life with colour. (Tea and cake included) Monday 6th August 11.00am
Eaten – We loved this show at the Fringe last summer (see review here). Expect lots of laughter and poo jokes during this journey through the digestive system and beyond which is sure to get everyone giggling ! What if your food started talking back? Meet Lionel the lion. He’s just eaten a human called Mamoru for lunch. Tuesday 7th August 4.00pm
The Breath Of Life – Anything can be a puppet, truly anything. Take a stick, or a stone, or an ear of corn: so long as you can learn to make an object ‘breathe’, you can bring it to life. Join Allison DeFrees and her team of magical puppeteers as they explore puppetry and imagination. Sunday 12th August 11.00am
So there are loads of good reasons to go have a day out, catch a show, do some crafts, play in the sand and most importantly get some fish and chips ! Bliss….
