You are invited to join the party as Little Feet Festival of Children’s Theatre returns in June with a packed programme on the theme of ‘parties and celebrations’ featuring exciting shows and activities for everyone aged 0 to 12 years.
Dinosaurs, cloud spotters, puppets, robots and a scrumptious new musical adaptation of Michael Rosen’s Chocolate Cake are all part of the fun and games in the festival presented by York Theatre Royal and tutti frutti.
The Theatre Royal foyer will be transformed into a playful wonderland of fun – in fact, the perfect place to hold your child’s birthday party.
