The Fringe this year is all about family fun.

Throughout the week there is fantastic family theatre and storytelling with Box Tale Soup presenting its adaptation of The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland and the REC Youth Theatre presenting Around the World in Eighty Days.

Anna Beecher also tells the story of Hans My Hedgehog, while Dreamshed Theatre presents The Theo The Mouse Show, written by Basil Brush writer Wink Taylor.

If comedy is more to your family’s taste, Comedy Sportz UK can offer great family-friendly improvisation. In this fast-paced, witty show, the comedy troupe splits into two teams that battle each other, while the audience votes on who is funniest.

For budding poets, Mark Gwynne Jones presents the family show Word Worms, which sees the audience introduced to a boy with an eye on his index finger and have the chance to make friends with a giant toad. Lastly, for those who want to create their own characters and stories, there is Tiny! Wilderness. This free event invites children and adults to step into a tiny magical world.
