We all surely LOVE the Kidzone at the Pleasance – with the picnic tables, the toys, the puppet theatre, the fabulous arts and crafts that keep our kids busy and entertained whilst we grab a coffee at the cafe – it’s an oasis amongst the chaos and I for one, spend alot of time there during August !!!
This year, as ever, it’s back and jam packed with activities for children up to 10 years old, including the popular shrinkie badges and key rings, decopatch animals and foam clay goodies!
As always the arts and crafts are very reasonably priced and the tent is family run by such lovely people that you will just want to keep on returning!
A trip to the Kidzone can be combined with seeing one or two of the brilliant children’s shows at the Pleasance this year – they have 17 this year for us to choose from, so there is bound to be something for everyone !! Some top picks are :
Cat In The Hat – This lovable character is back to entertain us with his rhyming wit and mischievous exploits ! Energetic and fun, this is great for the wee ones !
The Bear – Adapted by Pins and Needles Productions, this looks fab – a big white bear climbs int Tilly’s bedroom – but she’s not scared. Featuring beautiful puppets, this looks set to wow…
Wilde Creatures – From the talented Tall Stories team, Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy tales are brought to life- we see the pompous mayor, the petulant princess and the love-sick student compete to become the new town statue.
The Showstoppers Kids Show – Embracing the mayhem that can occur when the kids get to decide, this improvised musical adventure is bound to be great fun !
