KidsFest 2015 – Happening January 21st to March 1st 2015!
Our family are fervent KidsFest supporters, having enjoyed many of their productions. We brought the kids to watch Horrible Histories: Awful Egyptians last year and The Grufflao + The Snail and the Whale the year before. As a lead up the KidsFest 2015, Tiger even paid Dana and her little friends a surprise visit. We are most excited to present you the line-up this year!
