Welcome!

Here is our exciting PROGRAMME of events!

Brand new to the festival scene for 2017 comes ‘KITE AND TRUMPET’ Festival of Polish Art for Children, an eleven-day long celebration of the finest Polish art, design and theatre dedicated to the younger viewers. ‘KITE AND TRUMPET’ encourages a sense of freedom and adventure in the ways young people encounter art. Kids and adults alike will take part in series of interactive workshops, see beautiful theatrical plays and have an opportunity to play in an artist designed ‘BAWIALNIA/ PLAYROOM- Polish Design For Kids’ full of beautifully illustrated books, creative educational games and eco-friendly toys designed and produced in Poland. The festival is produced by Edinburgh based non-for-profit organisation Polish Cultural Festival Association, The Art Factory and Chorea Theatre Association from Łódź in Poland. The festival programme was designed in collaboration with two leading Polish theatres, 29 artists: illustrators and designers, 22 publishing companies and 11 creative companies. Most of the festival events will take place at Summerhall some of them will be held at The Scottish Storytelling Centre (in collaboration with The Scottish International Storytelling Festival) and North Edinburgh Arts.
