The Pleasance Kidzone at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Since its creation in 2009, the Pleasance Kidzone has grown from strength to strength and remains the only venue in Edinburgh to offer a completely dedicated child-friendly area. Located on The Green, in the heart of the Courtyard, the Kidzone takes the form of a giant inflatable igloo.

As well as the varied and largely interactive theatre programme, there is a cafe selling child-friendly food, a nappy change, pram shelter and weather-proof art pods where children (and adults) can engage in imaginative and fun arts and crafts activities. They can also enjoy storytelling sessions, face painting, music, author book signings and regular visits from all the Pleasance performers. It's certainly the best place to pick up essential word-of-mouth show suggestions.

It's our mission is to provide a fun, creative space where under 10s and their families can stop for a while and relax within the hubbub of the bustling Courtyard; a space where they don't feel like they're getting in the way. The Pleasance Kidzone has become a regular Fringe Festival destination for families who return year after year because they know that their kids will be properly entertained. There really is something for everyone!
