Family Afternoon Fun!

Merchant City Festival teams up with Edinburgh International Children’s Festival to present performances and hands-on arts activities as part of Festival 2018!

Family Afternoon Fun!

About Family Afternoon Fun!

Two afternoons of free events and activities for all the family including performances, live music, and interactive fun. No need to book, just come along to Merchant Square!

Edinburgh International Children’s Festival is produced by Imaginate, Scotland’s national organisation to celebrate, develop and promote theatre and dance for children and young people.

MCF is delighted to be presenting these two days of events in association with the Children’s Festival, so you can enjoy their exciting work for children.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Family Afternoon Fun! are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
