From the world premiere of Erth’s A Mazing giant labyrinth, to CIRCA’s international smash hit 46 Circus Acts in 45 Minutes and Imaginary Theatre’s mesmerising performances of children’s literary hit Tashi; Sydney Children’s Festival is a must-do school holiday experience.

With oodles of free activities, workshops, exhibitions and some ticketed events, the Festival is geared to engage the senses, stimulate the imagination and ignite every child’s passion for creative arts.

Kids can get their face on film, get hip with a hula hoop, be swept up in a story, fly, fall, or learn to flip… and make a mess in the mass of art and craft found in every corner of CarriageWorks.
