Fringe for kids

FullSizeRender (8)The Wanstead Fringe has always made a point of appealing to all ages, and there are again several events for children.

First up, on this Saturday morning are two drama workshops for young children led by Sprinklepunch Theatre. Details are here.

On Sunday, animator and comic artist Chris Drew will be demonstrating for children the secrets of drawing comics. Chris was one of the biggest hits at last year’s Fringe and this is sure to be popular. Make sure you get tickets.

On Monday there are two Jingle Bop sessions for pre-school children and their parents – they are fun and interactive sessions which are very popular with Wanstead families.

Then on Saturday 17 September, virtuoso guitarist Pete Black will be offering group sessions for children who are new to the guitar and to those who have been playing for a bit.

  1. It’s precisely because there is so much for kids that my comment on the other Fringe item is apt, regarding why can’t the Kinema show a film for grownups once in a while?

    No need to rub it in about how well catered kids are. It’s wall to wall all about kids. . .


    1. Well… the Fringe did try showing a film for adults last year, and an excellent one it was too (Fire in Babylon). At least one thing was learnt from the event – for family films, people turn up.
