bOing! International Family Festival – 27 and 28 August

bOing! is set to be a brilliant weekend of family-friendly free and ticketed performances, workshops and creativity across the Canterbury campus.

For ages 7+, headlining this year’s festival is a fantastic new adaptation of the dark and classic tale Pinocchio by Jasmin Vardimon Company.  The ART31 Kent stage returns with a vibrant mix of acts from Canterbury and around and join us on a strange and exciting journey in ‘Stanley’, a customised 1980’s Ford Orion in Ride!

For 3-7 years, dress up and join the royal court in the The Princess and the Pea, explore the beautiful Pop Up Garden, grab a pen and kick off your shoes for The Dance Show and Superhero fans shouldn’t miss the battle of super proportions in KAPOW!

For little bunnies aged 2 and under (and not so little bunnies) take a hop skip and jump to our Burrow to enjoy poetry, performance, music and much more! Plus meet the mysterious goat featured in one of artist Chagall’s paintings in Grandfather’s House.

All ages will enjoy the dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes melded with light and colour in Mirazozo Luminarium – a giant inflatable structure just waiting to be explored!
