Optimism, Imagination and Possibility

For nearly 40 years, the Festival has exposed countless youngsters to the arts in an entertaining and educational way. But more than that, it has introduced them to a bigger, more exciting world, and jump-started their curiosity, creativity and confidence. After all, someone will become the future of space travel, make the next medical breakthrough or create priceless pieces of art – why not them? Through world-class programming in music, dance and theatre, as well as literary, visual and circus arts, kids learn they are only bound by their imagination, and imagination is limitless!


We have a series of downloadable caricature cards created by illustrator, Andy Cookson. There are nine different cards to chose from including; Adventurer, Prince, Artist, Astronaut, Jet-pack explorerPrincess, Superhero, Train Conductor, or Fairy. Create your very own self drawn portrait.

Pick one or pick all, it's up to you. Have fun!
