Get ready for big fun at Kids’ Weekend – two magical days of stories, adventures, parades, paintings and performances.
The Pioneer Women’s Memorial Garden on King William Road will host a wonderful two days of fun filled activities for children as part of the Adelaide Festival’s Writers’ Week. This FREE event is a wonderful opportunity to meet some of your favourite authors. You can read Play & Go’s review of last year’s event here.
The Story Tent
This year the story hub of Kids’ Weekend will see an all star line-up featuring Mem Fox, Jackie French, Kate and Jol Temple, and Phil Cummings – Little Big Book Club. Story Trove is also back with new story performances. Make sure you check the blackboard as this year will see some very special surprise guest appearances.
Under new blue sails Nest Studio will be helping your little artists publish a book, make posters and do a bit of painting. Drop by for a story and help us making the official Writers’ Week bookmarks.
Evelyn Roth’s Nylon Zoo
It’s time for a parade. This year Evelyn Roth brings a Quoll and an Echidna to the Garden. So get ready to grab a costume and be in a parade before climbing into a beautiful creature for a story.
The Mural this year is all about Twins and their conversations. Join Indian designers Ragini Siruguri and Dhwani Shah to create your take on how the animals from their book Twins talk to each other with stencils and speech bubbles.
No bookings required for the Story Tent. Free Nest Studio and Nylon Zoo bookings on site on the day.
