KinderGardens Festival 2014

The fourth KinderGardens Festival is coming to Somerset! Under fives, their families and artists will get to see great performances across the county specially made for them.

KinderGardens is a biennial festival organised by Take Art, showcasing the best in international Early Years theatre, presented in a rural context.

The centrepiece of this year's KinderGardens programme is Geminus, the new show by Compagnie Ubi from France, commissioned as part of DanSCe Dialogues 2, with ten performances in Somerset forming the longest leg of their international tour. There will also be performances of Birdsnest Theatre's Wash and Norwich Puppet Theatre's Three Colours, as well as CPD training workshops held on 2 and 4 June for Early Years teachers and theatre makers.
