INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S THEATRE FESTIVAL

Lakeside’s inaugural International Children’s Theatre Festival is bringing companies from Italy, Germany, and Quebec to Nottingham and the East Midlands for the first time with performances suitable for a range of age groups beginning with children as young as 2 and their families. Not just for the little ones, these performances have captured the imaginations all age groups at worldwide festivals of theatre for family audiences, and we’re delighted to be bringing them here this summer! Whilst the performances take place in the Djanogly Theatre, outside in Highfields Park Architects of Air will make a welcome return with another of their stunning Luminariums – their first visit to Lakeside in August attracted over 5,000 people! And on Sunday 12 and Saturday 18 June there’ll be opportunities to participate in a number of creative arts activities, and enjoy some special outdoor entertainment.
