Event details

tutti frutti
York Theatre Royal

Introduce children to the magic of theatre with the Little Feet Festival of Children’s Theatre. Held every two years, and hosted by York Theatre Royal and tutti frutti productions, the festival transforms the theatre’s foyer into a beautiful and imaginative play area.

Come along and enjoy a special menu of festival food and free craft activities, plus a host of performances, interactive experiences and workshops for children of all ages and their families. From a play featuring worms, slugs, snails and spontaneous outbreaks of ant dancing, to extraordinary lifelike dinosaurs in a hilarious live show, there is something to capture everyone’s imagination.
