The festival is encouraging kids to take over some of the responsibilities too; managing the day-to day of the festival, selling programmes and checking tickets.

Tamsin Ace, Imagine Children’s Festival Lead Programmer said: “At Southbank Centre we believe in the power of storytelling to enable children to better explore the world around them. We also want to make sure that children have access to great art from the earliest ages. With fifty percent of our festival programming free, we hope this enables all types of families from all backgrounds to come along and try something new at Imagine. This year we’ve also expanded our programme of accessible events and performances to include events created for children with autism or tourettes or partially sighted or blind children. There truly is something for every child and every family at Southbank Centre’s Imagine Festival this February.”
