The Festival has a long history of running interesting workshops and family-friendly activities, and this year is no exception.

Here are just a selection of past workshops and activities:


Quiet room – A chill-out room for feeding or napping or resting

Soft play – Parents must supervise children at all times.

Free play space – a big room to run about and roll on the floor and skip and sing. Mostly for the kids…!


Art Exhibition

The programme of what and when and where will be added later – for now these will be between 10am and 5pm on either Saturday or Sunday (or both!) in the Royal Victoria Infirmary in rooms close to the stalls and the talks.
