Arts for kids in Scotland - what's on

There’s no shortage of cultural activities to inspire and amuse kids and young people in Scotland, whatever their preference. In addition to the numerous theatrical, musical and dance events held in venues up and down the country throughout the year, many of Scotland’s best-known annual festivals include dedicated programmes for kids (for example, the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe has hundreds of shows just for youngsters, and the Edinburgh International Book Festival features over 150 events for children, teens and older teens). A number of festivals are designed purely for kids. These include Edinburgh’s Imaginate Festival, the UK’s largest performing arts festival for children and young people held each May, and Glasgow’s Inspiration Festival, held every October to inspire kids to develop their creativity and expand their imagination.
